A medical imaging startup

Medical Startup

Ultrasound imaging is used for everything from diagnosing cancer to identifying a baby’s gender, but machines have always been large, expensive and complicated to use and interpret. Currently 4.7 billion people around the world lack access to medical imaging. Butterfly Networks is changing that.

Jonathan Rothberg founded Butterfly Networks to create better imaging technology to help his daughter, who suffers from a rare condition. The Butterfly iQ they created is a portable ultrasound device which costs only $2000. It is about the same size as a mobile phone and about as complicated to use. It is already in use in African villages.
