The advent of Portable ultrasound is as amazing to health care professionals as the laptop and smart phone are to those who utilize them. As the general computing parts became smaller the same technology migrated over to ultrasound. It used to be that all of the boards and software were developed by the ultrasound companies and kept propriety. This made for very large, heavy and expensive ultrasound machines. Now companies like Microsoft, Apple, Intel and others invent the hardware and software and the ultrasound companies do their magic with the high-tech products that we all have come to love. Portable ultrasound has enabled doctors with more than one location to buy one system for their multiple offices and for home healthcare and nursing home to get regular easy access to ultrasound procedures while not having to make the trek the imaging center.
