Slightly different price-tag to the basic TG01 phone.... here is a serious application for medical ultrasound usage... there was mention of a prototype in similar vein during 2009, but looks as if is now being turned fully commercial.
Mobisante MobiUS SP1 Smartphone-Based Ultrasound System Makes Its Commercial Debut........
Mobisante‘s smartphone-based MobiUS SP1 ultrasound is finally making its commercial debut. The USB ultrasound probe with the corresponding smartphone app already received FDA clearance last February, but it took the company quite a bit more time than expected to get its quality systems and a number of other FDA mandated controls in order.
Sadly, the MobiUS needs USB 2.0, and only works on the already two year-old Windows Mobile 6.5-based Toshiba TG01 smartphone, leaving iPhones and Android devices in the dark. Mobisante is looking into a tablet-based solution to move the product forward. The MobiUS can use the phone’s cellular and wifi connections for sending images for consultation or storage in the PACS system. The system is available at a starting pricepoint of $7,495, a price comparable to that of GE’s Vscan mobile ultrasound device.
