Fast diagnosis plays a crucial role in treating the patients, which can be life saving manytimes. Ultrasound scanning have the capability to image the organs in real time, thus offering quick diagnosis. Recent advancements in computing platforms greatly reduced the size of an ultrasound machine to portable level. Portable ultrasound machines can be used for point of care and remote diagnosis, this comforts the patients by making them not going to the ultrasound scanner for diagnosis. Diagnosing the patients at their bedside reduces the diagnosis and medication time. Lack of sonographers limits the benefits of using portable ultrasound machines in remote diagnosis. Tele-radiology can be effectively used as a solution to provide better health-care to more number of patients with less number of experts. Portable ultrasound in remote diagnosis is concerned with wireless connectivity for web-based diagnosis, security, data aggregation of patients etc., In this paper, we propose a working prototype of portable ultrasound scanning system integrated with wireless connectivity, biometric authentication, Global Positioning System (GPS). Additional interfaces to the portable ultrasound system enables secured cloud based diagnosis, improving the health-care and reducing the geographical separation between patients and doctors.
