Windows Mobile Smart Phones on the Horizon for Imaging Kidneys, Liver, Bladder, Eyes, Prostate and Uterine ScreeningsThe only problem here is a little update needed to work on more current day devices as right now it works on a Toshiba Windows Mobile phone and not the new current operating system.
Redmond, WA-based Mobisante said today it has won FDA clearance to start selling its MobiUS system to healthcare professionals in the U.S. The startup, which began R&D work in 2007, will now race over the next several months to establish manufacturing protocols so it can deliver its new ultrasound imaging system in a way that will pass future FDA audits, says CEO Sailesh Chutani.Mobisante Wins FDA Approval for “Ultrasound on a Smartphone” Technology | Xconomy
The Mobisante ultrasound system will cost between $7,000 to $8,000 for the whole package—a Toshiba TG01 Windows Mobile smartphone, with ultrasound probe, and Mobisante’s proprietary software, Chutani says. The company hopes to cut that price in half over time, and is experimenting with leasing models to bring cost down even further, Chutani says. If that can be done, then Mobisante can start to dream much bigger about getting ultrasound into the hands of healthcare workers in remote villages around the world, doing basic scans for internal bleeding, fetal health, and other common tasks. Such scans can only be done today on ultrasound systems that cost at least $20,000, and often more than $100,000—putting them far out of reach of the average front-line healthcare professional, even in the U.S.
