Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

In this installment, I check in with Richard Fabian, president and CEO of Fujifilm Sonosite, and Diku Mandavia, CMO for Fujifilm Sonosite, to discuss the company's FDA approval for using point-of-care ultrasound for COVID-19, the diagnostic value it brings to the pandemic, and what the road to regulatory approval looked like.

I initially spoke to Dr. Mandavia back in May about the role of point-of-care ultrasound in the pandemic, and since then the technology has continued to prove advantageous.
