The Vantage™ Advantage

How can the Vantage system Benefit your Research Lab?

The Vantage platform from Verasonics is preferred in research labs around the world because it is the only ultrasound technology with the flexibility to enable a broad scope of today’s research, plus the adaptability to support future research and development needs of all types.  As research funding becomes increasingly difficult to obtain, the intelligent choice for your lab is the Vantage system because it provides premium performance, versatile programmability, is easy to use and upgradable, and comes with comprehensive, world-class customer support.

Vantage systems provide unparalleled, premium performance:

  • Complete control over all transmit parameters
  • Real-time RF acquisition for all channels while imaging
  • Ability to modify the receive signal processing and image processing parameters
  • RF data immediately available in computer memory
  • Easy incorporation of custom algorithms
  • Optional per-channel Arbitrary Waveform transmit generation capability
  • Processing functions that execute on the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU)
  • Super-fast acquisition capability to perform functional brain imaging and other high frame rate applications
    • Data acquisition – up to 100,000 fps
    • Data transfer – sustained 6.6 GB/sec
  • Use 14-Bit ADCs – the largest ADC dynamic range on research systems today
  • Available with trigger inputs and output for synchronizing with other devices
  • Ability to acquire and process focused ray lines, wide beam and plane wave images
  • Highly configurable – from 32 to 2048 channels (multiple system configuration)

Vantage systems offer a flexible platform that enables expanding applications:

  • Available with high-power, multi-channel HIFU – capable of tissue ablation and cavitation
