iPad / iPhone - App for Mobile Signal Processing and Imaging based on Ultrasound Raw Data
Ultrasound-App developed by Fraunhofer IBMT presented at MEDICA 2011, November 16-19, 2011, Düsseldorf, Germany, Hall 10 Stand F05
Today mobile computing is gaining more importance in medical imaging. Existing solutions provide image display based on DICOM image data but the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering 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 raw-data formats, the mobile App provides rf-data signal processing like tissue characterization and other spectral analysis functions. One source for this raw-data is the modular and scalable ultrasound hardware “DiPhAS” with its open interfaces for device control and data acquisition.
The iOS App provides the basic operation of the Fraunhofer IBMT offline analysis tool for signal analysis, algorithm development and data export. Based on the raw-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.
The possibilities of this iOS-app and the research platform including integrated 3-D-tracking will be presented at MEDICA 2011 in Hall 10 Booth F 05.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
