The clinical product is the UltraVision XS which is a hand carry point of care medical ultrasonic scanner. The XS has a viewing screen (3000 x 1800 pixels) and a Touch Screen (1920 x 1080 pixels). Internally there is an eighth generation Intel i7 processor (Personal Computer (PC)) running Microsoft’s Windows 10. The XS has 16 GB of Random access memory and a 512 GB solid state hard drive.
This commitment by UltraVision Corporation to use an industry standard if one exists provides the user with a guarantee of non obsolescence,
The touch screen also provides the user with software configurable knobs and controls that only appear when called for in a user interface that is the industry’s easiest to use.
In the heart of the system there is a single, very large, 4 Billion transistor, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) that connects all the ultrasound specific integrated circuits together so any future upgrades can be accomplished with only software.
The XS’s hardware is designed to accommodate Algorithms. An Algorithm is just software (or code) working with the configurable hardware (in the FPGA) which again is just code that we can download via the internet to produce the various modes used in ultrasound today and the new modes in development for tomorrow.
Being committed to industry standards the UltraVision XS can support any PC keyboard, mouse, Wi-Fi connection, voice control and the myriad of devices. Even the transducer interface conforms to the ultrasound industry standard.
The UltraVision XS closes for transport into a 15 x 10 x 2 inch envelope protected but it’s solid machined aluminum case weighing only 12 lbs.
The UltraVision is designed, manufactured, and marketed in the United States America from our facilities in Palm Beach, Florida. The clinical products have a five (5) year warranty and conform to the ISO 13485 manufacturing standards. All clinical products have FDA 510K approvals.
The UltraVision is the product of 20 years of research and development to create the next generation of ultrasound where the hardware is a long term investment that supports the algorithms that perform the latest modes of imaging.
The UltraVision brings the first algorithms of elastography and high resolution imaging to this class of point of care ultrasonic scanners.
The solid machined aluminium case brings precision and durability allowing the company to confidently offer five (5) year warranties. The powerful Intel i7 processor offers so many extensive features they can only be listed in specification sheets.
The UltraVision-XS is a unique solution in the ultrasound market. An ultrasound platform that is based on three important hardware components that give technical, stable longevity to the unit, the latest high-end Windows processor, Its graphical Processing Unit, and a very large Field Programmable Gate Array. As a result, focus and progress are now made in software, allowing for improvements in scanning and the introduction of new modes without requiring hardware upgrades.
The UltraVision-XR can be purchased as a research platform for clinical or ultrasound research. Many universities have the UltraVision-XR for research into photoacoustics. UltraVision itself is researching the detection of microcalcifications in breast cancer with the intent to deliver it to the market soon. We are always willing to discus wit you your projects and see if we can help implement them.
The UltraVision Corporation has a patent pending for an algorithm for the visualization of microcalcifications that are produced by a mechanism of some breast cancers. The algorithm has been well tested in phantoms with clusters of 100-200 micron diameter calcium hydroxyapatite spheres mixed with scatters and returns strong echoes only from the calcium hydroxyapatite.
UltraVision assembles modules and components to enable manufacturers to include ultrasound in their equipment. We can provide the bare boards and an Application Interface that the OEM can use to customize the equipment to their needs.
Using our platform and API, OEM companies can add ultrasound scanning to their device or procedure. Any computer with Thunderbolt 3 can communicate with the ultrasound platform, and can control it using UltraVision software or by integrating control into other applications or software using the UltraVision API
