As the clinical significance of point-of-care ultrasound had been widely recognized, dissemination and education of point-of-care ultrasound became increasingly viewed as an important future issue. For dissemination and education, it is recommended that a training program including three core components be established: didactic education, hands-on image acquisition, and image interpretation experience. When working with a multidisciplinary team consisting of members from different departments in each hospital, and when medical institutions in the region collaborate on developing the educational program, it is deemed desirable to make effective use of online communication tools. I will outline a prototype online educational system we recently developed, in which lectures, representative ultrasound images, frequently encountered cases, and a question and answer site with bidirectional video transmission will be provided, and discuss the possibilities of online communication tools for dissemination and education of point-of-care ultrasound.
