March 26, 2018 -- Butterfly Network has developed an augmented-reality capability that enables experts to remotely guide users of its Butterfly iQ ultrasound scanners.
Butterfly iQ is a personal ultrasound device that sells for less than $2,000. Using Butterfly Tele-Guidance, an ultrasound expert can remotely guide any user to acquire ultrasound scans. This will help bring ultrasound to millions who do not have access to it, according to the firm.
Butterfly Network keeps ultrasound costs to $2,000 by using semiconductor technology and replacing piezoelectric crystals with its Ultrasound-on-a-Chip technology. Butterfly Tele-Guidance is currently available for investigational and educational use only, the firm said.
