The technology behind the Butterfly iQ



the significance of taking an ultrasound machine and pushing it on to a chip is first and foremost about cost we are able to make ultrasound machines much more accessible than they've ever been before because we leverage this sophisticated inexpensive high-performance supply chain that has filled the consumer electronics revolution and we're able to exploit some tremendous performance benefits to making ultrasound machines on this semiconductor platform we can engineer these chips to have a much wider bandwidth than a traditional piezo electric transducer and that means that we have one probe that can look anywhere inside the body we're actually able to not just put transducers on these chips but a lot of signal processing and computational horsepower and that means that we can do advanced signal processing techniques you wouldn't otherwise get unless you paid way over a hundred thousand dollars for an ultrasound machine and we can show you that image on an iPhone the way these chips are made is they start out with these large circular disks we figured out how to fetch almost a hundred ultrasound machines onto one of these large circular disks and these disks are run through hundreds of processes in incredibly complex sophisticated factories that already exist the same factories that are being used to produce the chips in your iPhone the chips in your computer the sensor for your digital camera we use that supply chain and we use it to make a life-saving ultrasound machine that little rectangular chip is the ultrasound machine it has over 9,000 little drums on it that wobble to create sound and then receive it from the body it does the computation to render an image and when you look at our probe the very front behind the lens is that Jeff you

    Does the philips lumify work the same way? because apparently the Clarius works with a chip as well….

    Does it have Pulse wave Doppler and can it measure distance and velocity?
