Doctor to perform an ultrasound exam remotely, safely guiding patient in real-time to self-scan from home

Connecticut, USA: Butterfly Network, Guilford based ultrasound manufacturer, launched a new version of TeleGuidance, ultrasound-based telemedicine platform for remote ultrasound scan. Dr. John Martin, Chief Medical Officer, Butterfly Network said, “We will be able to bring the expertise of the physician to the patient instead of the other way around. This is critical in these times and extremely valuable for the future transformation of care.”
TeleGuidance brings medical imaging to telemedicine. It leverages an array of leading-edge and easy-to-use augmented reality guiding tools. It allows trained practitioners to perform an ultrasound scan without being next to the patient.

Doctors across the country are rapidly adopting telemedicine to minimise the spread of infection and protect patients from unnecessary exposure. This revolutionary new telemedicine platform can support imaging-based monitoring of COVID-19 patients and those with chronic conditions like congestive heart failure.

Laurent Faracci, CEO, Butterfly Network said, “We believe that technology and innovation can make an immediate impact for good. To support the FDA’s new policies, we accelerated our efforts to build a breakthrough telemedicine solution for ultrasound at home under the prescription and supervision of a trained practitioner.”

Butterfly is starting with a limited release of the home-imaging platform to interested physicians and will roll-out the solution more broadly over the next few weeks. TeleGuidance is compatible with the latest generation of iOS devices. This is the latest of many new innovations released by Butterfly Network, in line with their mission to transform healthcare by democratising medical imaging.
