Paper Abstract

The Sonix RP is an easy to use ultrasound imaging device that is capable of acquiring high quality images. In addition to supporting the acquisition of multiple data types such as RF, elastography, and color doppler data, the machine is an open ended system providing users with full control over imaging parameters through an investigational research interface. Since the Sonix RP is PC based and it supports open-source software development toolkits, programs can be developed and executed directly onto the device, thus eliminating the need for extra hardware that is often required for data collection and processing. Due to these advantages, many universities and research institutes have successfully used the Sonix RP to test and implement their customized solutions for different applications.
