The GE Vscan Is Like A Having Ultrasound On A Mobile Phone

What features do you look for in a mobile phone? Camera? GPS? 3G? Ultrasound?

Technically the GE Vscan is not a mobile phone, but it certainly resembles any old clamshell on the market today. Instead, the Vscan a pocket-sized ultrasound intended to reduce the amount of patient referrals (and thereby expenses) by making ultrasounds convenient enough to be performed in-house (and by house, we mean individual doctor's offices, not your house...yet).

I can't speak to the healthcare logistics at work, but I do know that mums love seeing photos of kids on their mobile phones. Now if only this bad boy were linked to Picasa we'd really have something. [GE Reports]
