Introducing Cephasonics Soundings

Dear Customers and Friends,

Our executive and medical advisory board is second to none—enthusiastic, engaged, expert. They as well as several active investors unstintingly share know-how and act as a sounding board for the executive team. Here we’ll focus on two esteemed members of our medical advisory board.

In this post, we’re launching Cephasonics Soundings—our new Blog to keep you updated and informed about our company.

Dr. Bern Shen currently focuses on mHealth as chief medical officer of HealthCrowd, has a background in global emergency medicine, and is both a member of our Medical Advisory Board and an investor in Cephasonics. Thus, it was second nature to seek his early assessment of our new cQuest Dragonflyultrasound system for our product launch. You can enjoy his video interview here.

According to Dr. Shen, “the [Dragonfly] technology is a game-changer in two ways.  One is the quality of the images and the other is the size and portability.”

Mark E. Schafer, PhD., is a world-renowned expert on probes, helms Sonic Tech, Inc., and is a member of our Medical Advisory Board.  On May 8th he and I delivered an invited presentation at the 12th Annual Ultrasonic Transducer Engineering Conference in Torrance, Calif.

Clinical Implications of Stackable High-Channel-Count Ultrasound Hardware

In summary, our stackable approach utilizes uniform software across all size systems from 64 to 2048 channels. This eliminates mux complexity and noise. Since the software is the same on all boxes, we can start with a base 64-channel system, develop control and core algorithms and try different experiments without change to the software. Then we can scale the hardware to meet the final clinical need.

While scalability provides a simplified development pathway as well as versatility and choice in system configuration, it must be designed into the system hardware from the beginning.
