I know this does not relate to occupational therapy, however this intrigued me as a health consumer and got me excited about how quickly technology is developing.  
Here is a summary of the article sent to my by Nikki Esplin.

Mobisante has launched a tablet-based version of its portable ultrasound system, MobiUS, complementing the smartphone version launched two years ago.

  • The tablet-based system is called the MobiUS TC1
  • Uses more powerful ultrasound probes
  • Uses a larger screen to review high-resolution ultrasound images
  • Can be used without immediate access to electrical power
  • Tablet’s battery life can provide up to 4.5 hours of continuous scanning

Applications listed by the original author include:

  • Trauma e.g. the ability to diagnose and treat hemorrhage and pneumothorax or screen for cardiac tamponade.
  • Routine screening, e.g. bladder volume, carotid intimal thickness, deep vein thrombosis or abdominal aortic aneurysm.
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound e.g.ultrasound-guided joint directions or aspirations, and injury assessments.
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Obstetrics and gynecology e.g. including the assessment of the foetal lie and viability or monitoring of the uterus and ovaries during infertility treatements.
  • Ultrasound guided procedures such as anesthesia, intravenous placement, biopsies, drainag of abscesses, localization and removal of foreign bodies.
