Dr Cian McDermott is a consultant in Emergency Medicine and co-director of Emergency Ultrasound Education at the Mater Hospital in Dublin, Ireland. He described the Butterfly iQ as “an excellent technology for diagnosing point of care conditions,” adding:

“When I’m using the Butterfly device, I’m not trying to replace what the radiologists are doing. This is very different. If I have a hypotensive patient and I want to quickly check their left ventricular function to see if there’s a tamponade, pleural effusion or pneumonia, I can do that at the point of care and I don’t then need to send the patient to radiology to get an answer.”
