Two new wireless portable ultrasound probes provides affordable, high-quality point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), including whole-body imaging.

The EagleView (Hong Kong) dual-head ultrasound probe connects to a tablet or phone wirelessly with an iOS or Android app. By using different types of transducers, it can work as a linear probe ultrasound, convex probe, and phased array ultrasound probe at the same time, switching from deep scans to shallow ones with the flip of a switch. Fifteen different specialties are addressed, including vascular, MSK, abdomen, cardiac, gynecology, obstetric, urology, kidney, and lung. In addition, five modes are provided: B-mode, M-mode, Color Doppler, Power Doppler, and Pulsed Wave Doppler.

The EagleView POCUS probe comes with a built-in battery that is able to scan continuously for three to five hours. The lightweight (260 grams) device also combines linear, curved, and phased arrays transducers into one single probe, which turns it into an ideal whole-body imaging solution. The advanced imaging technology and one-button operation also offer stress-free image capture, with an easy-to-use app that displays real-time scans, saves both images and video clips, and shares and records the patients’ information.

“EagleView wireless portable ultrasound is expected to become a popular point-of-care diagnostic tool for healthcare professionals in the future. It may gradually enter homes and make a difference in telemedicine,” stated the company is a press release. “With a mission to make bedside ultrasound available to everyone, EagleView is dedicated to providing affordable, high-quality ultrasounds to clinicians, physicians, students, and healthcare organizations.”

POCUS is increasingly being used in various clinical situations, including the intensive care unit (ICU) to monitor therapy, in the emergency department (ED) to exclude/include pathological findings, in physiological monitoring, such as hemodynamic assessment, preload, cardiac function (LVF and RVF), afterload, and volume status, and evaluation of abdominal, gynecological, or obstetric status.
