Israeli Device Would Let Pregnant Women Take Ultrasound Scans on Phone

(The Times of Israel) An Israeli startup is in the final stages of developing a revolutionary handheld ultrasound device that will allow pregnant women to check on the health of their baby using only a smartphone.

PulseNmore LTD. says its device can connect to any smartphone, displaying the images on its screen and sending them to the pregnant woman’s personal doctor for examination, Hadashot TV reported Tuesday.

The invention could revolutionize ultrasound tests and the frequency in which expectant mothers check on their unborn child, especially in Israel, where women undergo 6-8 tests on average, according to Prof. Israel Meisner, head of the Obstetric Ultrasound Unit at Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva.

    American companies have had similar devices on the American market for a little while now. Nifty as they are I wouldn’t look to them replacing a trained operator.

    Cool! As long as it’s safe, I think it is a great way for women to see the Unborn Human inside their body.

    That would have been cool to have when I was pregnant, I always loved the ultrasound visit, so I could see my baby (but you only got 1 or 2). If it is safe to use, very cool! It would not have stopped me from going to the doctor, I still would have wanted a professional to check for the health of my child, but it would have been sooooo cool to peek inside myself and watch the different stages of my child growing. Gods power is simply amazing to behold!
