Portable ultrasound machine can be powered by smartphone
Scientists have developed a low-cost, wearable ultrasound probe that can be powered by a smartphone and could dramatically lower the cost of medical scans. Conventional ultrasound scanners use piezoelectric crystals to create images of the inside of the body and send them to a computer to create sonograms. Engineers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada developed a portable device-no bigger than a Band-Aid-that could dramatically lower the cost of ultrasound scanners to as little as USD 100.
