iPad / iPhone - App for Mobile Signal Processing and Imaging based on Ultrasound Raw Data

04.11.2011
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.

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
