Grants and in-kind support to USA emergency physicians to research medical imaging systems relevant to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended for research that addreses the effectiveness of ultrasound imaging in COVID-19 cases. Each application will be judged primarily on the significance of the project to emergency medicine, the soundness of the research methodology, the likelihood the project will be completed, and innovation. In addition to the funds, SonoSite PX, a new high-end ultrasound system with three transducers (phased, linear, curvilinear) will be donated to each study site. All study sites must be based in the United States. Funding priority will be given to multi-centered studies.

Diagnostic imaging for COVID-19 has included X-ray and CT scanning but ultrasound has significant cost and time advantages. Furthermore, critically ill patients with COVID-19 can have multi-organ failure in which point of care ultrasound can help for multiple purposes. Within four months, publications have shown the value of point of care ultrasound in COVID-19 patients, but the work is still preliminary and more formal research is necessary. In an effort to further learn and evaluate the role of ultrasound in COVID-19 a dedicated EMF research grant will be sponsored by FUJIFILM SonoSite to encourage study into this deadly disease.

Emergency Medicine Investigators are encouraged to consider all aspects of COVID-19 and the value of point of care ultrasound including:

  • Mild to severe illness
  • Initial triage, examination and ongoing monitoring
  • Multi-organ assessment

Priority will be given to projects studying new ultrasound COVID-19 care pathways that improve:

  • Quality of care
  • Cost of care
  • Patient and/or staff safety
  • Care efficiency
  • Patient satisfaction

Funds may be used for materials and supplies and to provide salary support. Capital equipment expenditures (costing more than $5,000 and a life of over one year) must be justified in the budget. Payments will be made to the principal investigator's institution that will be responsible for administering the funds.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$90,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

Multi-centered studies (3 sites) can request a maximum of $90,000. Single site studies can request a maximum of $30,000.

In addition to the funds, SonoSite PX, a new high-end ultrasound system with three transducers (phased, linear, curvilinear), will be donated to each study site.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An emergency physician must be a Principal or Co-Principal Investigator. Co-Investigators from the emergency medicine team or other disciplines are encouraged. The Principal Investigator will make all arrangements for conduct of the proposed research and assumes responsibility for conducting the research projects and supervising the work of all associate investigators.

The applicant is required to demonstrate that the project will be successfully completed at their institution(s). Research must be approved by the institutional review board (IRB) or its equivalent, and a copy of the approval or pending approval sent with this application. IRB approval must be documented prior to dispensation of EMF funds. The applicant must also submit a letter from the Chair/Director of Emergency Medicine stating that adequate funds and time will be available to the applicant to complete the proposed project.
