Data Acquisition for Ultrasound - SonixDAQ

By: Ultrasonix  09-12-2011

Specialized research module provides more data

SonixDAQ acquires pre-beamformed RF digital data from each channel on the ultrasound system. Access to this data allows scientists to create new beamforming techniques, research new scanning methods, develop photo-acoustic applications, and discover new methods for pathology detection for research purposes.

Interfaces seamless to SonixTouch Research

SonixDAQ connects to a transducer port on the SonixTouch to collect raw pre-beamformed data in a clinical setting for research applications. The transducer connected to the system is fully active while collecting data with SonixDAQ, this allows users to view and scan in any imaging mode on the SonixTouch Research including B and Doppler modes.

Other products and services from Ultrasonix


Elastography Ultrasound | Ultrasonix

Elastography is a strain imaging technique that has been well established in research literature as a promising technology to identify tissue stiffness of an abnormal growth. RF frames are acquired continuously and elastograms are generated in real-time by estimating the strain between sequential frames similarly to static methods.


Record Ultrasound Procedures - SonixCAM

It consists of an adjustable HD Camera that connects to a picture-in-picture feature to capture both the ultrasound image and video of the procedure in one high-quality synchronized file. Unlike traditional ultrasound videos that simply record the internal scans, SonixCAM captures hand positioning during scanning which can be useful for teaching and evaluation.


Ultrasound Needle Guidance - SonixGPS

SonixGPS is the only needle visualization technology that can operate at any depth or angle with consistent display of tip and needle position. With SonixGPS, you can insert the needle from any direction – either exactly in-plane with the transducer, or out of plane. You will see orientation bars on the lower right side of the monitor that will help guide your needle and hand position.


Record Ultrasound Videos - SonixDVR

You can record and archive your files in the widely-used MPEG-1 movie format on your Ultrasonix machine, on a server or save it to a USB stick. Unlike traditional Cine clips which can be up to 100 MB in size for a 25 second clip, SonixDVR records high quality video in small sizes. Ultrasonix offers the unique ability to record up to 60 minutes of an ultrasound exam in high definition video.
