    Innovation in handheld ultrasound is revolutionizing the use of ultrasound by healthcare professionals and helping to enable more personalized care for patients worldwide.

    Pocket-sized handheld ultrasound provides clinicians with a tool to complement the physical exam for focused assessments at the point-of-care.

    Handheld ultrasound provides a unique value as an easy-to-use, lightweight, and portable ultrasound tool clinicians can have literally on hand to evaluate and triage patients, enabling them to get answers quickly to help accelerate diagnoses and treatment decisions.

    Handheld ultrasound can help improve healthcare outcomes and potentially lower costs by reducing patient wait times and offering a more efficient workflow. It supports increased confidence by supplementing the information gathered throughout the clinical evaluation. Can improve practice management, patient follow-up and referrals to specialists, or in emergencies can help avoid unnecessary referrals and long wait times for additional care.
    The use of handheld ultrasound as part of the physical exam may improve patient care. Handheld ultrasound is valuable in enabling clinicians to see what they could only feel or hear at the point-of-care prior to the handheld ultrasound exam.

    Delivering information at the point-of-care for decision-making, handheld ultrasound helps clinicians optimize healthcare operations, services, and experience.
