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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
