The Pocket Scan

Could a handheld cardiac imaging device reduce rising health care costs?

It's as compact as an iPhone, but General Electric's V Scan can prevent heart disease, save you time and potentially reduce the nation's rising health care costs.

Some analysts warn that new health care technology contributes to the increase in American medical costs. Yet devices like the $5,000 V Scan can provide images and sounds of your heart comparable to those of a traditional echocardiogram — a $250,000 machine.

Inside E Street's Lark McCarthy speaks with the Scripps Institute's Dr. Michael Topol, who believes technology like the V Scan could help reverse the rising cost of health care.

Also of interest: The health care law is up to the Supreme Court.
