Portable, ultrasound scanners can help professionals to make life-saving decisions in real-time even when they are on site at a medical emergency. Prof. Yonina Eldar’s lab at the Viterbi Faculty of Electrical Engineering is developing a small and efficient innovative ultrasound system that transmits scans to treating physicians immediately. Examinations involve the use of an advanced probe, which transmits to a remote processing unit or the cloud. The image is sent to the physician’s smartphone or tablet.
