Our Mission

The Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Atlas is collaborative effort to highlight and advance the use of ultrasound around the world - focusing on rare, exotic and perfectly captured ultrasound images.

All of our content is free, open access, and peer-reviewed available to be shared and used for global ultrasound education.

Matthew Riscinti MD Co-founder

Emergency Medicine Resident at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. I believe in free open access education, the POCUS revolution, and application of POCUS internationally and in austere settings. Outside of the department, my time is spent rock climbing, snowboarding and traveling throughout the United States with my camera in hand.

Carissa Solari MS4 Chief of Operations & Social Media Specialist  
Current a 4th year Medical Student at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, going to be a Resident in Emergency Medicine at the University of New Mexico. I have come to respect the enormous utility of US in the ED and hope to learn a great deal while working on this project over the upcoming years. Outside of academics I spend my free time rock climbing or traveling (to a rock climbing destination.) Feel free to contact me at
