What You Should Know:
– UltraSight – an AI-powered micro-ultrasound company that is revolutionizing cardiac sonography to enable more accurate and timely clinical decisions – is now offering its services to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The device has FDA clearance and is now available in Israel, the UK, and the US.
– Many of the IDF soldiers will now have an ultrasound in their pocket. The PoCUS devices – powered by UltraSight’s software – deliver fast diagnoses for those injured in combat. For example, if someone is experiencing shortness of breath, IDF soldiers can easily assess the situation in the field and then immediately triage.
– AI is bridging the expertise gap – enabling soldiers, who do not have prior sonography training, to obtain diagnostic quality cardiac images, and make quick, strategic decisions that could save lives.
