Butterfly iQ and the Future of Point-of-Care Ultrasound
- : Parkville VIC 3050
University of Melbourne Ultrasound Education Group academics Prof. Alistair Royse and A/Prof. David Canty will be presenting a 90 minute Seminar of the revolutionary Butterfly iQ ultrasound device that has recently becoming available in Australia.
The Butterfly iQ is a portable battery-powered ultrasound machine which is about the size of an electric shaver. It can be plugged into a smartphone or a tablet, which acts as the display and controls. The revolution is that it is capable of curvilinear (abdomen/pelvis/lung), phased array (transthoracic echocardiography) and linear (vascular) imaging. This device may replace the stethoscope as well as other point of care ultrasound devices.
The seminar and workshop will include talks from both speakers as well as the opportunity to try out the devices on human volunteers and on vascular and thoracic procedure simulators in The University of Melbourne Ultrasound Simulation Centre.
