 AN OPEN SOURCE AND COMMUNITY BASED PROJECT: http://www.echopen.org/
echOpen, based in Paris, is an open and collaborative project and community, led by a multidisciplinary core of experts and senior professionals with the aim of designing a functional low-cost (affordable) and open source echo-stethoscope (ultrasound probe) connected to a smartphone, allowing the radical transformation of diagnostic orientation in hospitals, general medicine and medically underserved areas. This initiative is aimed for health professionals from southern and northern countries. In the Coclican project, APHP in Paris receives staff from Laos and Peru for training in using the device in order to implement its use for local patients suffering from liver tumours.
