FDA Clears USB Ultrasound System

April 25, 2007 - Direct Medical Systems, LLC received FDA clearance to market its InnovaSound USB Ultrasound System, a Plug and Play ultrasound probe system equipped with standard ultrasound probe capabilities but without the six-figure price tag.

The computer requirements for the USB ultrasound system are USB 2.0 and an operating system of Windows XP or Vista with minimum of 1 Megaherts processor, 512 memory. This technology results in affordable ultrasound being available in non-traditional locations.

The system will be used in physical rehabilitation, as a component to a bio-feedback system that visualizes muscles contracting, in real-time. According to the manufacturer, it also has applications in ophthalmology, obstetrics and gynecology, otolaryngology (ENT), proctology (specifically prostate care and diagnosis), emergency medicine, emergency medical technology (EMT), vascular surgery, dermatology, podiatry and phlebotomy.

Direct Medical Systems is developing an affordable and easy to use 3-D imaging module to be integrated into the InnovaSound Ultrasound Probe.
