The Ultrasonic echoencephalograph (echoencephaloscope)

The Ultrasonic echoencephalograph is a classical ultrasonic device which operates as a nonportable encephalographic system (controlled by a desktop computer) and as a portable device as well controlled by a notebook (the weight of the notebook is 0.5kg) with supply by accumulators.

The main medical techniques which are realized in the system:

  • detection of M echo signals;
  • transmission mode;
  • ventriculoscopy;
  • pulsoscopy;
  • calculation of brain mantle index.

Two encephalographic sensors are designed for the system: an emission sensor and a transmission sensor.

There is a programmed automatic temporary gain control in the system that enables getting echo signals of the required high quality.

Two parameters such as maximum depth of echography which is 230mm and Dead zone duration which is less than 15mm enables finding pathologic tumor masses in the periosteal cranial space.

The unique features of the system:

  • A doctor doesnt need finding echo signals manually because the automatic mode of reflected echo signals detection and identification is realized in the system.
  • There is the correction mode for sensors right location for antagonist zones.
  • Echolocation is combined with statistical analysis of reflected signals in order to identify echo signal more accurately and to make results of evaluation be less subjective.
  • There is the method of pulsation evaluation in real-time.

Application spheres

  • infantile and general neurology;
  • neurosurgery;
  • traumotology and orthopaedics;
  • intensive care units;
  • neonatology;
  • therapy treatment.

Functions and capabilities

The system is designed to make one dimensional echoencephalography study of brain according to standard techniques. They are used to detect M echo signals, brain ventricular width, pulsation rate, cerebral cortex index, transmission mode etc. Our echoencephalograph is connected with a personal computer or a notebook through the USB data interface unit. A doctor can work with system with help of the special software. The encephalographic system is full-function in this case.

A signal is displayed on the screen in real time mode. Echolocation is combined with statistical analysis of reflected signals in order to simplify the whole procedure of analysis and to identify echo-signal more accurately. In freeze frame mode the device makes measurements with automatic detection of finite complexes, shows the reflection from medium brain tissues, lateral brain ventricles with distance review, detects a transmission. Final results of the analysis are recorded into a database. It forms a calculation table of basic parameters. These recordings are stored in the data base with further optional data sorting and edition. Echo signals can be optionally printed. There is also a supporting system that makes decision.

Software

The echoencephalograph software is controlled under is full-function no low than in the Windows 7 environment. An encephalographic program is user-friendly that is the main unique feature of the software. There are no other requirements for operating with the software for a doctor except to being computer literate. The main window of encephalographic program is similar to the Windows desktop environment. It is possible to do the following acts in the main window:

  • To open the patient database.
  • To open the main window for an echo signal investigation.
  • To open the software description.
  • To watch the contact data.

The database is used for patient data input, for patient data and examination results storage as well. There are capabilities for optionally groups of patients sorting, for a system of report form of diagnostic decision creation, for printing of a report.

It is possible to do the following acts in operating window: to start/stop an echolocation process, to choose an echoencephalography method, to edit echo signal detection results, to calculate parameters of an echo signal.

Delivery set

The echoencephalography system comprises the following basic parts:

  • The echoencephalography unit that consists of ultrasonic generator, ultrasonic detector for echolocation realization, and digital processing unit as well.
  • Two encephalographic sensors.
  • CD with OS Windows based software package, carrying out M echo technique, ventriculoscopy, pulsoscopy, etc, that provides a video image, echo-signal recording and storing in the data base, data analysis and protocol generation.
  • A personal computer of a notebook with a printer.

To make the system function it is required to have a personal computer or a notebook (IBM PC) with CPU clock speed not less than 1000 MHz, RAM 128 MB, hard drive memory - 20 Gb, video adapter SVGA with a video card of at least 32 MB.

We can set up the system into a clients computer; we can also deliver the system with a computer and a printer.
