William Richard, Ph.D. of Washington University is well on the way to providing the USB Smartphone Probe, allowing for an easy ultrasound on-the-go. Richard has shrunk down the electronics of a cabinet-sized device and placed it inside a USB ultrasound probe, while leveraging the computing power of a Smartphone.

The result is compact, cost-effective ultrasound that can not only be used for prenatal scanning, but also for scanning of arteries to look for obstructions, veterinary use and tissue analysis.
