Moleculus ultrasound imaging/photoacoustic device

PhotoSound Technologies and Telemed have released the jointly-developed Moleculus.

Moleculus enables photoacoustic acquisition and 2D imaging with 128 channels alternating between the ultrasound beamformer and amplified broadband parallel receive. The system collects photoacoustic signals while being optically or electrically triggered by the laser source and performs ultrasound imaging in between laser pulses. Raw data can be accessed in both modalities. The system comes with a software development kit (SDK) that allows customisation of thedevice software and graphical user interface. There is a linear, as well as, a micro-convex probe available for imaging applications and the system is configurable for custom-designed probes.

MoleculUS features B(2D), M, colour Doppler, and pulsed wave Doppler imaging modes as standard clinical features. 

MoleculUS permits real-time visualisation of optical tissue contrast on top of the anatomic structure and functional information provided by ultrasound. The imaging system is designed for clinical and pre-clinical research that can benefit from co-registered ultrasound and molecular photoacoustic imaging. 

MoleculUS features a compact housing and USB PC connection allowing easy instrument integration.
