The future of ultrasound for Global Health.

“In a world rife with healthcare disparities yet replete with innovation, there is no longer an excuse for the lack of diagnostic imaging in resource-limited settings. POCUS [point-of-care ultrasound] has changed the landscape.”

— Dr. Nahreen AhmedDivision of Critical Care
University of Pennsylvania

Maximize your impact in resource-limited settings.

Butterfly iQ+ is designed to dramatically expand the capabilities of practitioners working outside of hospitals in developed areas.
Collect advanced imaging, perform rapid assessments, and guide critical procedures no matter where you are. Share images seamlessly with doctors across the globe for help reading and interpreting scans. Use Butterfly Education tools to empower the next generation of local practitioners.

Sustainable access.

Global Health organizations are looking for tools that can help them build sustainable healthcare programs in limited-resource settings.
TeleGuidance allows an experienced sonographer to remotely guide and train less-experienced clinicians.
Our in-app and desktop education platform provides modules that teach key clinical applications of POCUS. Don’t just deliver impact; nurture long-lasting transformation.

Frontline Care.

Identify differentials for fever, shortness of breath, and abdominal trauma with iQ+—and make quicker care decisions in limited-resource settings.

“From pediatric pneumonia in the mountains of rural Uganda, to maternal health in inner-city Nairobi, and now multifaceted virtual education of MDs in Yemen, Butterfly iQ plays a frontline role with Bridge to Health and our partners in democratizing diagnostics and empowering local healthcare providers to get the right diagnosis.”

— Dr. William CherniakFounder, Bridge to Health

Improving maternal health.

Access to antenatal care is shockingly unequal globally¹, as well as within the USA². Studies have demonstrated the improvement in clinical management, treatment determination and procedural application that can be made with local adoption of POCUS³.
POCUS empowers local practitioners to detect breech position and multiple gestations; this alone significantly impacts both maternal and fetal well-being.

“A factor contributing massively to maternal fetal mortality rates is postpartum hemorrhage. Using Butterfly iQ to identify at-risk mothers and facilitate crucial prenatal care is life-saving, and exponentially impactful.”

— Dr. Nahreen AhmedDivision of Critical Care
University of Pennsylvania
