HIFUPlex™ PLUS 1000 and 3000 – Complete Pre-clinical Platforms for 3D Therapy Planning, Delivery, and Monitoring
HIFUPlex™ PLUS expands the HIFUPlex™ offering by providing turn-key solutions for both large- and small-animal USgFUS research. Both HIFUPlex™ PLUS 1000 and 3000 provide specific products and features that will facilitate and advance FUS research.
HIFUPlex™ PLUS 1000 includes a benchtop platform with motorized positioning of the applicator and motorized rotation of the imaging transducer for 3D USgFUS on small subjects. The compact benchtop platform offers x- and y-axis mechanical computer-controlled motion. HIFUPlex™ PLUS 1000 is compatible only with the HIFUPlex™ -01, -02 and -03 transducers, which add z-axis axial steering. The water conditioning unit provides degassed water as well as a heater and chiller for automatic closed loop temperature control.
HIFUPlex™ PLUS 3000 includes an applicator arm and integrated cart for easy manual positioning of the transducers and motorized rotation of the imaging transducer for 3D USgFUS on large subjects. HIFUPlex™ PLUS 3000 is compatible with any of the HIFUPlex™ transducers. The integrated water conditioning unit provides degassed water as well as a heater and chiller for automatic closed loop temperature control. The bladder coupling system is an alternative to the larger cone included with the HIFUPlex™-04, -05 and -06 transducers, for increased treatment depth.
SoniVue™ HIFUPlex™ & HIFUPlex™ PLUS Software Enhancements
Verasonics has enhanced the SoniVue™ HIFUPlex™ software and added new capabilities with the SoniVue HIFUPlex™ PLUS. Both interfaces now feature a streamlined appearance, more imaging modes, Thermal Strain Imaging (TSI) for monitoring (optional on HIFUPlex™), and experiment data management.
The SoniVue™ HIFUPlex™ PLUS software provides all the capabilities needed for a 3D experimental workflow:
- Several imaging modes for ultrasound guidance, monitoring and assessment
- Scan conversion of a series of 2D slices using rotary scanning to a 3D data set
- SoniVue™ HIFUPlex™PLUS software for 3D treatment planning and delivery
- Thermal Strain Imaging (TSI) for monitoring of local heating
- Experiment data-logging and review tools
