On the International Space Station (ISS), the Human Research Facility (HRF) enables standardized, systematic health and medical research data collection from crew members. Previously developed advanced diagnostic ultrasound in microgravity (ADUM) protocols helped pave the way for remote guidance and usage of ultrasound modality. Now, data collection on ISS is integrated into the highly dynamic and robust HRF, enabling better analysis of data sets. In the ISS federal laboratory, an ocular ultrasound, like astronaut Karen Nyberg performs on herself using the HRF, benefits human space exploration and life on Earth.
