General Electric's new Vscan portable ultrasound scanner, possibly giving every physician Star Trek-like diagnostic capabilities
GE CEO Jeffrey Immett announcing the Vcsan at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco
General Electric has unveiled a pocket-sized ultrasound scanner at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco. Looking very like (and not much bigger than) a clam-shell mobile phone, the device allows physicians to scan any part of the body by placing the attached wand on it. The system will be able to see real-time black and white or color inner body images on the screen of the Vscan and data can be also be saved and reviewed at a later date.
