  • Publication number: 20220344034
    Abstract: A system for recording ultrasound images comprises a memory comprising instruction data representing a set of instructions and a processor configured to communicate with the memory and to execute the set of instructions. The set of instructions, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to receive a data stream of two dimensional images taken using an ultrasound transducer and determine from the data stream that a feature of interest is in view of the transducer. The set of instructions further cause the processor to trigger an alert to be sent to a user to indicate that the feature of interest is in view of the transducer, and send an instruction to the transducer to trigger the transducer to capture a three dimensional ultrasound image after a predetermined time interval.
