Wearable ultrasound patch could offer real-time heart scans on the go

Ultrasound can provide detailed images of your heart, but the bulk makes it impractical for continuous scanning — especially outside of the hospital. It might be far more portable in the future, however. Researchers have developed a wearable ultrasound patch that provides real-time heart imagery, even while you're in motion. It also uses deep learning to automatically calculate ventricle volume and generate performance stats. You'd know your cardiac output at any given moment, for instance.The device uses piezoelectric (that is, pressure-powered) transducers to perform deep tissue imaging. Str
