Using the Butterfly iQ handheld ultrasound wand and an iPhone, you could take your own ultrasound as your doctor analyzes the imagery in real time during a video chat.
At CES 2019 I saw this technology in action for myself, watching someone scan their own heart and talk with their doctor.
But this isn't a typical CES show for me.
I'm walking around the halls five months pregnant, so I was especially fascinated to learn more about a personal ultrasound machine.
But the Butterfly team is beta testing software to take tele-medicine to the next logical step: real-time analysis from anywhere with your doctor.
And if someone isn't trained in how to do a proper ultrasound, Butterfly also demonstrated AI-infused software that can help guide someone to capture the image correctly, so the file could be sent to an expert to analyze.
