The SoniVue QuickScan is designed to provide an easy-to-use interface and thus, will simplify research in clinical and preclinical applications by easing communication with sonographers and physicians who may have limited engineering experience. When planning an interdisciplinary or clinical study with Vantage systems or discussing results, SoniVue QuickScan could be used to acquire images, identify regions of interest, and help explain ultrasound images easier than with the Vantage system’s basic Research GUI.
SoniVue QuickScan can be used for applications where researchers want to quickly image a region of interest with a set of highly optimized, preconfigured, and well-controlled settings, and thus eliminating the need to program a script and avoiding unexpected results due to programming errors when operated by an inexperienced user. Thus, QuickScan-captured, high-quality images can be used to identify regions (e.g., tissue types, organs, etc.) and to compare them to images and data that were acquired with research-based, customized, and specialized scripts.
Additionally, SoniVue QuickScan offers a set of features that are currently not available with the Research GUI. These features include basic measurement calipers, cineloop capture controls, and data reviewing tools. This tool will be generally useful to present ultrasound studies in a more stream-lined and attractive interface.
