KANGAR: If there is a tool that can increase efficiency and lighten the burden of overworked frontliners battling Covid-19, shouldn’t doctors embrace it?

According to Hospital Tuanku Fauziah’s (HTF) advanced acute internal medicine consultant Dr Paras Doshi, a pocket-sized ultrasound device is already in use in Malaysian hospitals as a diagnostic tool for the early detection of Covid-19 complications.

He said it is compatible with smartphones and tablets, and gives doctors more freedom of movement.

Paras said patients will not have to go for an imaging test of their organs, like the heart, lungs and kidneys, using bulky equipment like a computerised tomography (CT) scanner because the portable device serves the purpose.
