    A 390-Gram Ultrasound Fitting in the Pocket

    Healcerion, a company based in South Korea, has created an ultrasound system that is no bigger than the transducer itself. The SONON 300C uses a tablet or smartphone as the display, wirelessly transmitting the data to the smart device from where images can be analyzed.

    This mobile ultrasound device weighs no more than 390 grams with the rechargeable battery and is small enough to fit in the pocket, according to the company.

    The SONON mobile application supports the device so providers can scan patients and transmit images and recordings securely to any hospital via Wi-Fi, 3G or LTE networks. It could be particularly useful for point-of-care treatment.
