Butterfly TeleGuidance is the world’s first integrated ultrasound telemedicine platform that enables a trained practitioner to connect with a novice or a peer at the bedside. Collaboration has never been more seamless, whether you’re down the hall or across the world.
TeleGuidance is adjunctive and should not be solely relied upon to diagnose or treat COVID-19. USA RX only. Use by novice operators guided by trained practitioners, is permitted under FDA’s COVID-19 public health policies.

Our training video will help you better understand how to use Butterfly TeleGuidance.
Butterfly TeleGuidance can be used by any healthcare professional. It allows a trained scanner to remotely guide a novice colleague at the bedside or to remotely collaborate with a qualified peer.
TeleGuidance involves streaming a video feed while imaging which can be demanding for device hardware. As a result, TeleGuidance is only currently supported on more recent Apple devices.
No, you can only call colleagues who have a Butterfly account.
If reception is poor, you will notice a reduction in video quality, with a lower resolution on the two video feeds and potentially a lower frame rate. If the network connection is very poor, you may see the call drop or you may not be able to connect at all. TeleGuidance works well on WiFi or 4G networks.
The trained practitioner can control gain, depth, preset, mode and can capture images and videos.
We are beginning to support TeleGuidance for Enterprise clients. Please contact your sales representative or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Under FDA’s COVID-19 Emergency Guidance, we have developed a solution to allow for patient self-scanning at home when guided by a remote trained practitioner. Please submit a support request here if you are interested in learning more.
