High-end Echo Color Doppler for scientific research and clinical diagnostics

ArtUs EXT is an innovative PC-based, open-architecture, Echo Color Doppler system. It is the latest expression of TELEMED technologies dedicated to scientific research and clinical diagnostics. It opens new frontiers for the evolution of beamforming, Image Processing and Quantitative Ultrasound Imaging techniques.

  • Clinical images
  • Transducers
  • Documentation
  • Software
  • Experience the future.

    ArtUs represents the synthesis of Telemed’s commitment to the pursuit of excellence, with the adoption of the latest technological solutions:
    Full digital beamformer, Parallel Beamforming, Advanced Spatial Compound (linear and convex), Tissue Harmonics with Pulse Inversion technology (iTHI), WideView imaging (linear and convex), Advanced Speckle Reduction Imaging, Digital Doppler Multi-Beam Processing, Raw Data, etc… The system supports a wide range of high crystal density, multi-frequency wideband transducers from 1.0 to 18.0 MHz. In Parallel Beamforming mode, the system allows a very high frame rate.
    Telemedicine applications allow remote control of the system for remote consultation, application training and technical support, including free software updates. In its research version, it can be configured with I/O synchronization options, RF Data Access, etc…
