The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of a wireless ultrasound scanner, a device that can help physicians complete high-quality scans quickly when they have limited access to traditional machines.

The ultrasound, made by Clarius Mobile Health, a digital healthcare company in Canada, is a pocket-sized scanner that wirelessly connected to Apple and Android devices, according to a statement from the company. It was first introduced in March 2016 and is designed to allow clinicians to conduct quick scans and to conduct short procedures at bedside.
