An Ultrasound on a Smartphone

Perhaps you might remember that I wrote about a smartphone ultrasound.

It turns out that there is a way to use a smartphone to perform ultrasound.

It was cleared two years ago by the FDA.

But it's not just any smartphone-- it's one specially built for the purpose.

I got wind of this when I read that the company that came up with it, Mobisante, has just produced a tablet version of their product.

I wonder if this could be of help to pro-life counseling someday. Right now an ultrasound is a very cumbersome piece of machinery. This little device might even be shared between different centres. Just a thought.
