I caution any older generalist out there mulling a purchase of this device. The learning curve is higher than you think, integrating it into one’s practice and getting paid for it is another thing Make a wrong call based on the data and this litigious society will have your skin. I saw it demonstrated at a meeting and got google eyed by it. Unfortunately all the extra work EHR generates for primary care now means my time for learning is sorely limited in trying to keep up with the paperwork. Specialty types love this thing and I’m not criticizing the quality. For them they can apply it every day. Me? I’d have to order a confirmatory test anyways although if one gets support from what the Butterfly is telling them, might make day planning easier. Butterfly has taken care of me and I dropped the financial lamentations from this review. Still a fanboy though. Wished I was younger and a specialist
The US is fantastic and provides great images for diagnosis, procedures, and teaching. I’ve recommend this to all my partners (ED docs) and we’re using it in the prehospital environment too. However, I have 2 asks, 1 easy, one not so easy. 1. For vascular access presets, would you please add a digital centerline on the screen that can be turned on and off? It’s great to have probe markers but a corresponding line on the screen would be helpful. 2. Bluetooth model please. Wireless would make this the perfect device for every clinician to carry on their pocket.
Just started using this. Ultrasound wasn’t even an option when I started back in the dark ages. I’ve just started with the device over the past few weeks using online tutorials and you tube videos to get used to it before taking a certification course. It’s great for what I’ve needed with just a basic knowledge - vascular access, basic cardiac function point of care imaging, finding abscess collections, looking at joints, looking at ganglion cysts, etc. Service and responsiveness to questions has been outstanding.
BiQ is a powerful, super practical, easy to use, easily portable clinical tool. Nice clear images, hyper-fast boot. So well designed! And, with a frequency range 1-10MHz, you will be ready for the most satisfying POC diagnostic bedside tool. I love it. My BiQ is my daily clinical care (ED, ICU, floor, anywhere needed) and education tool. It’s always in my pocket. You have to carry gel, and have towels to clean the patient and device -of course. Welcome to today’s medical practice!
Wonderful teaching and learning tool at a very reasonable price point. Portability is phenomenal. Image quality is great. Any possibility that you will be releasing a version of the app for the iPad mini? A bigger screen than the iPhone would be nice for teaching small groups (and I already have a mini). There should also be an option to buy the device without the Butterfly Cloud service. Also had issue with the probe heating and shutting down after 30 min of scanning using the cardiac preset.
