    Ultrasound image processing equipment used in hospitals and clinics is expensive. The expense of ultrasound equipment increases the medical costs associated with prenatal care, making it prohibitive for many births to access this equipment for the associated health benefits in detecting complications. The Bear Claw team from BYU designed a cloud-based image processing solution, which couples with a tablet computer and USB ultrasound device to dramatically reduce the cost of capturing and processing ultrasound images.
