Gone are the times when the doctors had to send their patients to a pathology lab to get an ultrasound test report for the concerned part of the body. Handheld Ultrasound Scanners are proving to be the new revolutionary devices in the sector of medical diagnosis. The wireless ultrasound scanners are connected to a smart phone or a tablet using Wi-Fi.
These scanners are so small that they could easily fit into a pocket and can be carried around. These small scanners scan the area and transmit the data to the device in real time. The transmitted image is high resolution and very clear and precise.
These are specifically called portable because they are powered by battery and can be carried around in the pocket, without making a hole in it. These are very useful for the doctors who face a large number of patients requiring ultrasound tests on a regular basis.
These will not only save the time of the doctors and their patients but also provide a real time diagnosis to the doctors. Another thing to keep in mind is that the doctor can see the ultrasound on the spot and so, the medication can start earlier than it was supposed to be.
Don’t get deceived by the mere size of these scanners. These babies are capable of functioning just like those bulky ultrasound machine without taking up that much of space and resources (electricity, etc). The big machines are not only costly but also consume a lot of electricity and require a permanent attendant.
If we compare the prices, portable scanners would just cost a fraction of the bulky ones and would operate at much lower costs. These portable scanners offer a better and much cheaper solution, without any compromise on the quality, over the big and bulky ultrasound machines.
