Ultrasonix (Richmond, British Columbia) has released an optional HD video camera for the company’s Sonix Ultrasound devices.
When performing ultrasound exams, clinicians operating the machine are well aware of where the transducer is.
But, if you want to review the imagery at a later time or pass it on to someone else for a second opinion, seeing synchronized video of the transducer being applied can be helpful in understanding the ultrasound.
SonixCAM sits atop an adjustable flexi-arm and simultaneously records video in MPEG-1 format in parallel to the ultrasound itself. Post exam you can add titles to the video for easy archiving and durling playback you get picture-in-picture functionality.
The system was unveiled last week at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine Convention in New York
