The inaugural SonoGames were held at the SAEM Scientific Assembly in Chicago this week. Thirty-eight residency programs were represented at the event, organized by Resa Lewiss and SAEM’s Academy of Emergency Ultrasound. Three rounds separated the dabblers from the master sonographers. In order to win, teams had to demonstrate ultrasound knowledge on tests and then complete feats such as blindfolded scanning and replicating sample images.
Here are the results:
Winner: Boston Medical Center
Team members: Derek Wayman, Joseph Pare, and Neil Hadfield. Faculty: Kristin Carmody.
They share The Cup, and each take home a copy of The Manual of Emergency and Critical care Ultrasound
Runner-up: University of Texas-Houston
Semi-Finalists: University of Michigan, University of Connecticut, Carolinas Med Center
