PhotoSound Technologies, Inc. and Telemed, UAB are proud to announce their first jointly developed product. Pri- marily an ultrasound imaging device, MoleculUSTM features B(2D), M, Color Doppler, and Pulsed Wave Doppler imaging modes as standard clinical features. Additionally, MoleculUS enables photoacoustic acquisition and 2D imaging with 128 channels alternating between the ultrasound beamformer and amplified broadband parallel receive. The system col- lects photoacoustic signals while being optically or electri- cally 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 customization of the device software and graphical user interface. There is a line- ar, as well as, a micro-convex probe available for imaging applications and the system is configurable for custom- designed probes.
MoleculUSTM enables real-time visualization of optical tissue contrast on top of the anatomic structure and func- tional information provided by ultrasound. The imaging sys- tem is designed for clinical and pre-clinical research that can benefit from co-registered ultrasound and molecular photoacoustic imaging. With a compact housing and USB PC connection allowing easy instrument integration, MoleculUS was built with the customer in mind.
