Portable Ultrasound Scanner
Medical imaging, especially ultrasound, is undergoing a major transformation. In addition to cart-based high-performance ultrasound systems, handheld devices can now be used to complete high-quality ultrasound imaging. Due to advances in semiconductor technology, ultrasonic smart probes have become smaller and more portable, enabling people to access medical care services outside of medical offices and hospitals. Ultrasonic smart probe is essentially a portable ultrasound, which has the entire front end and almost all back-end hardware integrated in it. By reducing power consumption and size, smart probes can process data while maintaining signal quality, and display images on mobile devices using high-speed USB or wireless connections.
