The use of point-of-care sonography in clinical settings such as emergency medicine and intensive care units has increased, but adoption in neonatology has been slow.

The objective of our article is to introduce a focused bedside ultrasound scan that is easy to learn, rapidly performed, and relatively inexpensive.
