What is the Butterfly membership?
A Butterfly membership is required to start scanning, as it includes the credentials that you will use to log into the Butterfly iQ app. The membership serves as your user license and allows you to gain access to use the probe.
We offer multi-level Membership options to best meet our users’ needs. If you’re a member of a team of clinicians working together, we recommend Pro Team.
Is a membership required?
Purchase of a new Butterfly iQ, iQ+, or iQ Vet requires purchase of a Butterfly iQ membership. After the first year, if Pro members choose not to renew their membership, they would lose access to member-only features, such as Power Doppler, study sharing, and the education portal. They would continue to have access to the studies they've already saved, but would no longer be able to save new studies. The iQ would only operate in a live view mode with access to B-mode and Color Doppler.

I need help selecting a membership plan.
If you are a solo practitioner, our most complete ultrasound solution for individual practitioners is our Pro Individual offering. If cost is a concern, consider Pro Custom, which allows the flexibility to select between one or a combination of our offered feature bundles: diagnostic tools, procedural tools, education, and collaboration.
If you're purchasing more than one probe for use by a variety of people in the same practice or clinic, you'll probably want our Pro Team membership, which allows you to create separate user accounts for each user. Pro Team members all have access to the same archive library and can leverage worksheets and team commenting for greater collaboration and documentation.
If the above options don’t meet your needs, we also offer additional packages for educational organizations, government, and enterprise organizations. Pricing for those offerings is available upon request.
Can I be part of a team and have my own individual subscription?
Yes. You can be a member of as many teams as you'd like in addition to having your own individual account.
