Venous Thrombosis during Spaceflight

ButterflyiQ plays a critical role in decision making in abnormal treatment contexts, such as on the International Space Station. Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, here is an account of a POCUS ultrasound-exam performed by an astronaut, guided in real-time and interpreted on Earth to guide treatment and follow-up to an in-flight mission partner.
