With FDA nod, Philips adds cardiac imaging to smartphone plug-in ultrasound device

The FDA cleared Philips’ cardiac transducer for use with Lumify, the company’s smart-device diagnostic ultrasound. The new add-on brings cardiac imaging to the portable diagnostic, which already allows doctors to scan the gallbladder and lungs among other areas.

Launched a year ago, the Lumify package consists of an app and two transducers for use with an Android smartphone, as well as access to an online portal and Philips support. The app connects to the cloud, where clinicians may access data and images through Philips’ HealthSuite Digital Platform. In addition to cardiac and abdominal scanning, Lumify also offers OB/GYN and focused assessment with sonography for trauma (FAST) examinations.
