Sonic Concepts, an innovator of high performance transducers, and Verasonics, a leader in research ultrasound systems, introduce the HIFUPlex Portfolio. By bringing together the best of Sonic Concepts’ transducers, and the high quality and versatility of Verasonics’ Vantage ultrasound systems, the HIFUPlex Portfolio delivers premium quality, innovation and versatility to ultrasound-guided focused ultrasound (USgFUS). HIFUPlex addresses many applications in focused ultrasound (FUS), and meets a wide range of budgets.
Sonic Concepts designs and manufactures cutting-edge, top-of-the-line therapeutic transducers in many different configurations. These transducers offer high efficiency over a broad bandwidth and highly uniform acoustic output at the radiating surface ideal for FUS applications. Verasonics’ Vantage ultrasound systems are used today at numerous institutions and companies worldwide for FUS research and product development. The Vantage 64 LE, Vantage 128 and 256 systems are available in high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) configurations, which enable both energy delivery and imaging using the same transmitters, for flexible and comprehensive exploration with focused ultrasound.
FUS demonstrates important and growing utility in a variety of application areas, including tissue destruction, drug delivery, neuro-stimulation and modulation, immunomodulation, stem cell honing, in addition to many others. Ultrasound is becoming increasingly preferred as a valuable technique not only for energy delivery, but also to identify, guide and target tissue in real time, as well as to monitor the treatment. HIFUPlex can be used in the vast majority of indication areas to advance biomedical research.
