UltraiQ general purpose phantoms

Description

UltraiQ offers Zerdine-based- as well as rubber-based phantoms. Using the UltraiQ general purpose phantoms, you can for example determine the contrast and depth of penetration of your transducer. There is an UltraiQ general purpose phantom for any type of 2D transducer.

Features

The UltraiQ general purpose phantoms set is specially designed for an optimal workflow. All types of targets can be captured in one image. This phantom is compatible with any 2D ultrasound transducer (frequency 2-15MHz) as well as elastography transducers and FibroScan devices. A fast and accurate analysis of the captured image in UltraiQ tells you the following image quality parameters:

  • Contrast / Dynamic range

  • Axial resolution

  • Lateral resolution

  • Distance accuracy

  • Penetration Depth

  • Elasticity

By repeating these tests frequently, changes in performance can be detected at an early stage.

UltraiQ Software

UltraiQ is a five minute quality assurance software tool for ultrasound transducers. Multiple large scale assessments of transducers have proven that up to 40% [1, 2, 3] of the ultrasound transducers in clinical use are damaged. With the use of UltraiQ, these defects could have been detected and resolved at an early stage. Misdiagnosis due to a damaged transducer has also occurred[2].

With its easy to use interface and compatibility with numerous national and international guidelines for QA, the software tool is a must-have if you want fast, standardised and strictly objective quality assurance. UltraiQ was developed in house by Cablon Medical B.V., and the development of the software program continues constantly as new methods and guidelines become available.
