We recently entered into relationship with BBS Medical AB from Sweden to develop and market specialized ultrasound probe/transducer adapters that allow users of Cephasonics systems to connect a variety of different probes from other companies to the Cephasonics system. As part of the relationship, BBS Medical will develop and market the adapters both directly as well as through Cephasonics.
These new adapters will support probes initially from Ultrasonix and overtime a growing number of other probes from other major ultrasound companies to be directly connected to the Cephasonics system without any rewiring or modifications. This will give our users and developers a much greater array of ultrasound probes that can be used in research and development with the Cephasonics ultrasound engine. We’re very excited to work with BBS Medical and the ProbeHunter team to expand the ability of our platform to work with popular ultrasound probes.”
About BBS Medical AB
BBS Medical AB specializes in developing real-time test systems to verify the performance of ultrasound probes, Their ProbeHunter probe testing system currently offers approximately 50 different adapters to test all leading brands of ultrasound probes including GE, Philips, Siemens, Samsung, and Toshiba/Canon. The BBS Medical ProbeHunter team supports various University ultrasound research programs to enable researchers to quickly and easily verify the performance of their ultrasound probes continuously for their studies. To be verified as an approved supplier for adapters to Cephasonics ultrasound research platform confirms that their work meets the high standards within the ultrasound research industry as ultrasonic experts.
The 2019 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium is happening in just over a week from October 6th to 9th in Glasgow, Scotland
If you're coming to IUS, please come by the Cephasonics booth (#13) and say hello to the team. We'll be demonstrating some exciting new features and capabilities for ultrasound product development.
Our CEO/CTO, Richard Tobias, will be in the booth each day to talk about our latest enhancements. If you would like to meet with him 1-on-1 to discuss specific topics or projects, please send us an email and we'll do our best to set something up on his schedule.
Here are some of things we will be discussing at IUS:
New Probe Adapters from BBS
We're excited to be working with BBS Medical AB from Sweden to develop and market specialized ultrasound probe/transducer adapters that will allow you to connect a variety of different probes from other companies to the Cephasonics system.
This will initially permit probes from Ultrasonix and overtime a growing number of probes from other major ultrasound companies to be directly connected to the Cephasonics system without any rewiring or modifications.
Enhanced SDK with Expanded GPU support
We'll be releasing a new version of our CuSDK software development kit later this year. It will have many new features and enhancements including expanded support for GPUs as well as ultrasfast imaging support and expanded AI application development capabilities.
New Dual Mode Elastography System
We're announcing a new Cephasonics ultrasound engine designed specifically for push applications that supports a variety of ultrasound modalities such as beam forming, ultrafast imaging and shear wave elastography.
With its dual mode feature, the system can use a single ultrasound transducer to both generate acoustic radiation force in tissue and image the tissue displacement response or it can be pared with a second Cephasonics imaging system to enable simultaneous push/imaging with 2 probes – one connected to each of the systems that supports pushing with one probe and at the same time image using a second probe on the other system.
Expanded Matlab Support
We'll be discussing our upcoming new MatLab toolkit product that will provide enhanced integration between MatLab functionality and our CuSDK software development kit.
