New use for video iPod

Posted by Kristi Heim at 2:28 PM

Here's a new use for video iPods sure to rival the latest music video: technicians can refresh their training in ultrasound procedures by viewing "compelling, brief and instructionally rich" refresher courses on their iPods.

Seattle-based SonoSite, which makes handheld systems for taking ultrasound exams, says it started the new intiative to use iPods for training based on the rising cost of health care and ever greater demands for doctors to become more efficient.

Now technicians can get instruction on the spot by viewing one- to five-minute tutorials using the cool tool that fits right into a lab coat pocket. SonoSite calls it "hand-carried education." So where is that appendix located again?
