Whole-body assessment. FAST support. Procedural guidance. Anytime, anywhere.

An integrated imaging solution that supports an array of emergency medicine applications—and never leaves your side.

Perform guided procedures with ease with new Biplane Imaging™.

Now with the world’s first POCUS Biplane Imaging, it is possible to see the short and long axis of your needle simultaneously in real-time. Developed in partnership with clinician leaders in E Med, Biplane Imaging has been built to leverage the power of Ultrasound-on-chip™ to fire perpendicular rows of elements at the same time. The result is the ability to see both in-plane and out-of-plane on-screen during peripheral IV access, joint injections and more.

Focused cardiac assessment.

With 3 presets dedicated to cardiac imaging, Butterfly iQ+ can give you the confidence to make quick bedside decisions in a large range of patient types. Is there a pericardial effusion? Does this patient have systolic heart failure? Is there organized cardiac activity? In fact, cardiac activity with POCUS has been shown to be the variable most associated with survival after cardiac arrest1.

Lung evaluation.

The assessment of patients with acute shortness of breath has always been a cornerstone of Emergency Medicine, and lung ultrasound can help clinicians rapidly and accurately identify many of the common causes of dyspnea, including lung lesions consistent with COVID-19. With imaging that auto-optimizes with depth, the ability to assess A lines, B lines and pleural lining in one sweep is now possible by Butterfly iQ+.

Peripheral and central line placement.

Ultrasound guidance has been shown to improve success rates, reduce the number of attempts and decrease the complications associated with CVC insertion2.With new Needle Viz™ technology the Butterfly iQ+ makes it easier to identify the needle and get the control needed for central venous catheterization, as well as peripheral line placements.

FAST exams.

Focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) is a protocol to guide clinician investigation for internal bleeding. The FAST preset was developed in conjunction with emergency room clinicians to balance the frame rate needed to identify pericardial effusion, and the resolution/penetration needed for rapid evaluation of the peritoneal cavity, all on one probe.

“A RUSH exam requires a cardiac view, a lung view, an abdominal view which on a traditional device would require multiple different transducers. With Butterfly, I go from one to the next with a simple change of preset. I know I’m going to be able to get each one of those with accuracy that I can make decisions on—fast.”

Point-of-care ultrasound in the Emergency Room has been shown to contribute to optimal patient management by providing timely care, improving diagnostic accuracy, and increasing procedural safety. Moreover, it has also been shown to be an effective means of cost reduction.

The future of ultrasound is here.

Enables you to focus more on patients, and less on probe integrity and readiness.

New Needle Viz™ technology makes it easier to identify the needle and get the control needed during in-plane guided procedures.

Longer battery life, more durability1.

Enables you to focus more on patients, and less on probe integrity and readiness.

Sharp cardiac & lung imaging3.

Enables you to efficiently utilize POCUS, especially for rapid cardiac and lung assessments.

Smaller probe face2.

Allows you to get the views you need to perform FAST exams, intercostal cardiac assessment and other exams where access is needed in tight spaces.
