Butterfly TeleGuidance™ is a new collaboration tool for trained healthcare professionals. Use TeleGuidance to facilitate a connection at the bedside by calling any other Butterfly user directly from the iQ app.
Due to COVID-19, we have accelerated the complimentary beta release of Butterfly TeleGuidance™ so you have more tools to manage the rising pandemic from remote locations.
The caller’s ultrasound image and camera are live streamed to the collaborator. The collaborator can adjust the preset, mode, gain, depth, and capture images or cines.
The caller can place video calls from the iQ app while the collaborator receives calls from a computer, and both parties can communicate as they would on any video call.
The collaborator can send graphical instructions which are overlaid directly on the iQ app so the caller can be guided to the right view.
*Butterfly TeleGuidance Beta currently does not support measurements, M-mode, TGC and cine buffer
Our training video will help you better understand how to use Butterfly TeleGuidance.
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 remote expert 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.
