Abstract

Point-of-care ultrasound imaging is increasingly used by anesthesiologists to facilitate rapid clinical diagnosis and treatment in the perioperative period. With its growing popularity, inevitably, unfamiliar structures will be observed. We present a case of cystic liver lesions in a healthy model during a point-of-care workshop. We address the clinical, ethical, and legal implications of incidental findings in anesthesiology. We offer recommendations and an algorithmic approach to these occurrences.
