Diagnostic ultrasound has been widely used for fetal and maternal health. Full size ultrasound machines have been in use for years. These are quite large and prohibitively expensive, which restricts their use in community settings. Advancement in technologies has helped in the development of compact, portable ultrasound technologies that enable health care providers to deploy this tool for fetal and maternal health in community settings and smaller clinics. Portable ultrasound devices are medical imaging devices that use ultrasound to visualize muscles, tendons, internal organs, and to diagnose a range of medical conditions.

These devices were first introduced in the 1980s and over the years have progressively undergone changes in their features. Presently, these devices are lauded for being small, durable, and light weight. These provide high resolution, high quality images at a cost significantly lower as compared to conventional ultrasound devices in critical care unit or emergency department. These devices also aid in better monitoring and faster interventions in acute events. In rural or remote areas where manpower and resources are limited, these devices have proved their value by improving the level of treatment by transferring images to central locations.
