VIDEO: Use of Technology to Address Underserved Populations

Partho Sengupta, M.D., MBBS, chief of cardiology, West Virginia Heart and Vascular Institute, explains how wearable, smartphone-based apps and medical devices, and artificial intelligence (AI) might be used to cost-effectively triage larger numbers of patients in rural areas and in the developing world for serious diseases. He spoke at the 2019 American Society Of Echocardiography (ASE) meeting.

Sengupta is involved with a pilot program using the Butterfly app and transducer to turn a smartphone into an inexpensive ultrasound system. He said the idea is to have novice ultrasound users screen more patients with these types of devices and the exams either being sent to a remote hospital for reading. He said AI algorithms also could be used to help flag any exams that show abnormalities, which would greatly speed reads and getting these patients treatment.

The X5-1c transducer from Philips provides enhanced clinical information in transthoracic imaging over a standard phased array transducer. When combined with nSIGHT Plus image formation on the EPIQ CVx cardiology ultrasound system, the X5-1c transducer enables image quality rarely seen from a transthoracic transducer. 

Watch the video to learn about the benefits which may include decreased exam time due to faster access to echo windows, increased confidence in quantification results and more.
