The East Anglian Air Ambulance is using portable ultrasound machines - designed to help staff diagnose a patient's injuries.
The technology can help paramedics scan a patient's abdomen and chest to see if there's any evidence of bleeding - which then helps decide whether they can go to a local hospital or need to be admitted to a major trauma centre.
The kit has already become a staple - and is being used on an almost daily basis.
