Patent
Ultrasonix Medical Corporation | Date: 2011-02-04

Apparatus and methods for measuring and analyzing blood flow in vessels in the bodies of living subjects are provided. The true velocity vector, or a projection thereof onto a scan plane, for blood flowing at a location in a vessel is determined from multiple Doppler velocity components. The true velocity vector is displayed as a directional marker on an image comprising the vessel. The true velocity magnitude and angle, and scalar blood flow characteristics derived therefrom, are plotted as a functions of time and/or position across the depiction of the blood vessel in the image. Time intervals for which blood flow characteristic data is displayed and/or determined may be user configurable.

A handheld ultrasound device is provided, having a transducer assembly for emitting and receiving sonic signals, a configurable signal processing unit, and a data processor configured to provide configuration data to the signal processing unit. The configuration data defines a beamforming configuration, filtering configuration and envelope detection configuration for an operational mode. The operational mode may be selected by the user or may be determined based on a detected type of the transducer assembly.

An ultrasound imaging system has a 3D location system and a data store for recording locations within a patient. Navigation to target locations is facilitated by providing graphical elements superposed on a 2-dimensional image. The size and/or color of the graphical elements are controlled in real time based on distance of the target location(s) from a current image plane. This provides intuitive visual feedback and can be achieved with low computational requirements.

An ultrasound imaging apparatus (100) includes a transducer array (102) configured to acquire a 3D plane of US data parallel to the transducer array. The transducer array includes a 2D array of transducer elements (104). The ultrasound imaging apparatus further includes a 3D US data processor (116) that visually enhances the structure of tissue of interest and extracts voxels representing tissue of interest therefrom. The ultrasound imaging apparatus further includes a display (118), located opposite the transducer array, that displays the extracted voxels representing the tissue of interest the 3D plane of US 3D US data.


Patent
Ultrasonix Medical Corporation | Date: 2012-05-16

A method for configuring an ultrasound system for an examination comprises displaying a plurality of examination categories for selection by a user, receiving a user-selected examination category, identifying any probes connected to the ultrasound system, determining which of the connected probes are suitable for the user-selected examination category, for each suitable connected probe, displaying an indication identifying the suitable connected probe for selection by the user, receiving a user-selected probe identification, and, activating a selected probe indicated by the user-selected probe identification for data acquisition.

Patent
Ultrasonix Medical Corporation | Date: 2012-08-02

A patient monitoring system has one or more ultrasound devices that monitor patients. The ultrasound devices can communicate to a central station by way of a wireless data communication network. Ultrasound images acquired by the ultrasound devices may be displayed at the central station. Alarms may be generated based upon conditions detected by the ultrasound devices. An ultrasound device may have a strap that permits it to be held in place with a transducer against the skin of a subject to permit ultrasound observation of the subject either continuously or intermittently over an extended period.
