Imaging Transducers

Sonic Concepts specializes in optimizing your imaging requirements utilizing it’s wide-bandwidth stack technology.  Select one of our removable imaging probe to plug directly into your HIFU transducer, or collaborate on a new customize dual-mode 1,024 element 2D array with Sonic Concepts.

IP-Series Imaging Probes for USgHIFU

Our imaging probes include Ultrasound Guided Focused Ultrasound (USgFUS) and Passive Acoustic Mapping (PAM) allow you to integrate real-time imaging arrays with your HIFU transducer system. They are made with wide-bandwidth (>95%), single-crystal technology and are delivered in environmentally sealed housings.

Secondary feature integration include:
• Passive cavitation detectors (PCD)
• Illumination sources
• Laser pointers
• Fiber optic illuminator for photoacoustics
• Cameras
• Biopsy needle guide, punch or forceps
• Catheter guide
• Endoscopes
• Temperature monitoring via thermocouples or thermistors
• Mechanical pointers, wires, rods or tubes
• Micromanipulator

– MRI Compatible

Our IP-Series Imaging Probes are compatible with Sonic Concepts H- or H-300 series HIFU transducers.
