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