Wireless ultrasound scanners have been developed to tackle the disadvantages of having a cable connection between the central processing unit and the probe in scanners. The cable is generally heavy and bulky, as it contains a high number of coaxial wires. It creates a contaminating source in sterile fields such as anesthesiology and ultra-sound guided surgery. Wireless ultrasound scanners have shown great potential in assisting diagnosis in situations where a prompt decision is of vital importance, as in presence of life threatening medical disorders. Wireless ultrasound scanners have proven beneficial during the examination of hemodynamically unstable trauma patients. Moreover, wireless ultrasound scanners are useful in ambulatory care centers for the early diagnosis of peritoneal, pleural, and pericardial effusion as well as vascular disorders such as ischemia and thrombosis. In addition, wireless ultrasound scanners are becoming increasingly affordable. Therefore, hand-held and portable devices represent an effective option to provide advanced health care facilities in rural and remote districts of low and middle income countries, where access to other imaging technologies is nearly absent. Wireless ultrasound scanners are powered by rechargeable batteries. Images scanned by wireless ultrasound scanners can be transferred to laptops or smartphones, where they can be reviewed or shared with experts on a cloud platform. These devices can scan or image lungs, abdomen, and hearts.
