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.
