The World’s First Wireless, App-Based Ultrasound: Interview with Dr. Ryu, CEO of Healcerion
JUNE 29TH, 2018
Healcerion, based in South Korea, was the first company to receive FDA clearance for a wireless, app-based ultrasound system back in 2015. The groundbreaking work done by South Korean engineers and scientists laid the foundation for the development of an ultrasound transducer that works with most smartphones or tablets. Since introducing the SONON 300C convex transducer, the company has been making progress to further advance this branch of ultrasound devices. Their latest, the SONON 300L linear transducer, weighs only 13 ounces (370 grams) including the battery, and features color Doppler mode for easier musculoskeletal (MSK), vascular, small parts (breast, thyroid), lung, and other types of imaging.
We had a chance to ask Dr. Benjamin Ryu, the CEO of Healcerion, some questions about how his company got to where it is and where it is going.
