Medical tricorder on its way :)

This is a Star Trek medical tricorder, but this is an actual machine from Siemens.

''Ultrasound Acuson P10 hand held diagnostic ultrasound system is a little larger than a common PDA, weighs only 1.6 pounds, and fits easily into a lab coat pocket. Eyal Herzog, MD, FACC, director of the Cardiac Care Unit at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, Told that Pocket Ultrasound Acuson P10 brings the new technology to the patient, especially when a patient is in cardiac distress or with trauma patients, who have multiple injuries.''
