OK, maybe you’re not cool enough to own a smart phone like iPhone or Android, but hey now you can ultrasound on the go without Apple or Google’s handhelds 🙂

Yup, Signos, a portable handheld ultrasound diagnostic tool, has been recently approved by the FDA! You may not be able to get a BIG view of all what’s happening, but it’s thought that this device can prove great for initial screening/examination and on the go. Boy do I see this to be a great tool in Africa for Doctors without Boarders for example.
