Mobile ultrasound machines are small, often no bigger than a laptop computer. Today's technology makes mobile ultrasound unit's images as clear and beautiful as the permanent ultrasound machine.
As technology continues to develop, so will the demand for mobile ultrasound. This is evident as mobile ultrasound is increasingly being used in many medical situations. Sonosite, (a mobile ultrasound manufacturer), now advertises its mobile unit in commercials featuring the convenience of having an ultrasound unit readily available in any situation. Also, ultrasound software programs makes reading ultrasound exams for Radiologists available anywhere there is an internet connection.
Physicians that frequently order ultrasound exams, now have the option of having these exams done in their clinics This provides convenience and comfort to the patient.
