RK-100台式聚焦超声系统

 MRI-compatible image-guided focused ultrasound system

这一可兼容核磁共振成像的影像导航聚焦超声系统由一套电脑控制的高精度三维定位系统和高能的聚焦超声转换器组成。
定位系统能够精准地向毫米大小的区域输送聚焦超声能量到软组织。这一系统专门用于研究从小到大的动物模型,从而探究超声-组织相互作用,在用于人体之前评价治疗方法的安全性,可匹配临床MR和CT扫描仪从而完成影像导航的治疗计划和递送。该系统完全无磁性,因而可以与高场核磁成像仪共同工作,还可匹配X射线CT成像。 


The MRI-compatible image-guided focused ultrasound system consists of a computer-controlled high-precision three-axis positioning system and a high-power focused ultrasound transducer coupled.
The positioning system enables delivery of focused ultrasound energy to precise locations in soft tissue. The system is designed specifically for research in small to large animal models to investigate ultrasound-tissue interactions, and to evaluate the safety of therapeutic approaches prior to translation into humans. The entire FUS system fits within the bore of a clinical MR or CT scanner for image-guided treatment planning and delivery. The system is completely non-magnetic, enabling it to function within a high-field magnetic resonance imager for image-guided treatment planning and monitoring of ultrasound exposures. In addition, the system is compatible with X-ray CT imaging as well.
lp-production-iso-in-bore
Inside every RK-100 is a custom-built and calibrated focused ultrasound transducer capable of exposing millimeter – size volumes of tissue within a subject.
The non-magnetic positioning system can translate the transducer along arbitrary 3D paths during imaging. The delivery of ultrasound exposures is achieved using images acquired with MRI or CT, depending on the configuration of the system. Real-time monitoring of forward and reflected electrical power to the transducer enables consistent delivery of energy during experiments.
The system is capable of delivering exposures ranging from high-power continuous sonications for thermal coagulation of soft tissues, to pulsed sonications suitable for applications such as tissue lysis, drug delivery, or vascular permeabilization. Since the system is designed for research it is designed to be flexible, offering users the capability to design their experiments to suit their needs.
