Today, mobile computing is gaining more importance in medical imaging. Existing solutions provide image display based on DICOM image data but Fraunhofer IBMT is raising the bar with full ultrasound signal processing done on iOS devices like iPad or iPhone. Based on measurement data of the IBMT ultrasound research platform "DiPhAS" or other rf data formats the mobile App provides rf signal processing like tissue characterization and other spectral analysis functions.
One source for this rf data is the modular and scalable ultrasound hardware "DiPhAS" with its open interfaces for device control (unique closed-loop) and data acquisition (radio frequent beamformed data or single element data without beamforming). The iOS App provides the basic operation of the IBMT offline analysis tool for signal analysis, algorithm development and data export. Based on the rf data processing we offer the possibility to develop custom algorithms or applications on top of our hardware and software platform with direct support for developed algorithms in the live system. We also provide full medical certification for your custom application based on our platform.
The ultrasound department of Fraunhofer IBMT presents this app and the latest version of the ultrasound research platform "DiPhAS" for clinical use at the Fraunhofer Medica booth hall 10 / F.
The app is now available in the Apple iOS app store:
