Not that I’m a big fan of Microsoft Windows Mobile, but you gotta admit this is pretty awesome!! I can see this very useful for medical professionals and clinicians out in the mountains of Afghanistan,trekking Africa, or in the middle of south american jungle!

Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis adapted a small ultrasound prove to interface with a Microsoft Windows mobile smartphone. Although the screen may be too small to diagnose anything properly, it is thought the concept will be used to scan a patient away from the clinic, with the data wirelessly sent to physicians with large screen computers for evaluation. – Michael, Medgadget.com
