Ultrasonic measurement system for generating ultrasonic images using the B-mode and M-mode methods with an ultrasonic array transducer
Delivery includes ultrasonic array transducer, manual, power cable, USB cable, software
Ultrasonic B-scan Device Gi210 incl. Ultrasonic Array Transducer
With the Gi210 device and an ultrasonic array transducer, ultrasonic images can be produced using the B-mode and M-mode methods.
The ultrasonic probe that is part of the scope of supply possesses an array of 64 convexly arranged individual transducer elements.
The device is directly controlled from the PC. Via the PC software, measurement parameters for the actual measuring operation can be set and typical parameters for signal and image processing can be adjusted.
Various ultrasound models are available for experiments:
– a test phantom (order no. 10420) with structures that allow the examination and visualisation of physical factors and phenomena of the propagation of ultrasound,
– a fetometrically measurable fetus model (order no. 10430),
– two breast models (order no. 10224 and 10225) with cysts or tumours and
– a gallbladder model (order no. 10440) that simulates various illness symptoms.
With this equipment, experiments can be created for medical-technical and medical training that relate to both fundamentals and application.
Convex array probe with 64 transducer elements
Automatic probe recognition
Frequency range: 2-5 MHz
Imaging methods: B, B+M
Interface to the PC: USB
Dimensions: 255 mm × 170 mm × 265 mm
Power Supply: 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz
With the software (Windows 7 and higher), ultrasonic measurements can be carried out using the B-mode methode with or without an additional M-mode scan.
In parallel with the ultrasonic B-image, the amplitude signal can be shown along a single scan line. This way, it is simple to illustrate the step from the actual measurement signal – the ultrasonic signal – to the B-image.
For the carrying-out of a measurement, the transmission power, gain and measurement range can be adjusted, focus areas set and the TGC added over several sampling points through the measurement range.
Typical parameters and methods of signal and image processing such as smoothing and sharpening filters, dynamic range, rejection, speckle reduction, brightness, contrast and gamma correction can be applied and altered in order to investigate their influence upon the measurement results, i.e. the ultrasonic images.
For the analysis of the measurements, lines and ellipses can be generated in the ultrasound B-image in order to measure spacing, lengths or areas and their perimeters.
