DERMCUP: High resolution ultrasound scanner for skin imaging by Atys Medical

31 August 2015

Atys medical provides an extensive line of medical equipment dedicated to non-invasive diagnosis that ranges from pocket Doppler and peripheral Doppler to high resolution ultrasound scanner including transcranial Doppler, cardiac output monitor and systolic pressure measurement devices.

Ultrasound scanner dedicated to dermis

Dermcup allows the acquisition in real time and in-vivo of high resolution skin vertical cross sections: 16 mm x 12 mm

Dermis is echogenic. The echoes come from the network of collagen fibers and elastic fibers. The lesions (tumors, cysts, angiomas…) have a hypoechoic appearance.

High resolution echography for dermatology

Thank to its high frequency, Dermcup offers a high resolution:

  • Axial: 30 10-3mm
  • Lateral: 120 10-3 mm

In dermatology, it is necessary to visualize infracentimeter lesions. This cannot be done with traditional ultrasound scanner fitted with 7 to 13 MHz probes.
DERMCUP is well adjusted for visualization of lesions in dermis.

Image acquisition in real time

The acquisition frequency is 10 images per second.

Ergonomic probes

During the examination, the probe is easily moved on the skin.
It is very comfortable to handle.
