  • Publication number: 20210004957
    Abstract: The present disclosure is generally related to systems and methods that can be implemented in a mobile application to allow users, such as parents and care providers, to measure and monitor, for example, a patient's body including an infant's head shape, at the point of care. The point of care can be, for instance, the home environment, a doctor's office, or a hospital setting. After acquiring 2D and/or 3D images of the body part, parameters reflecting potential deformity can be calculated. If abnormal measurements are determined, the user can be guided through therapeutic options to improve the condition. Based on the severity of the condition, different recommendations can be provided. Moreover, longitudinal monitoring and evaluation of the parameters can be performed. Monitoring of the normal child development can also be performed through longitudinal determination of parameters and comparison to normative values. Data can be shared with clinician's office.

  • Publication number: 20190254624
    Abstract: Imaging of internal structure of a patient, such as the prostate, is performed using ultrasound tomography by inserting a first ultrasound probe into the rectum of the patient, positioning a second ultrasound probe on an abdomen of the patient, and aligning the first and second ultrasound probes with one another to obtain acoustic information for reconstructing tomographic images of the internal structure. Light sources can also be shined to the tissue of interest, such as prostate say by a transurethral catheter thus making photoacoustic waves that can be received by the said TRUS or TRAB/TRPR transducers to reconstruct photoacoustic tomographic image of the tissue, as well.

  • Patent number: 10335116
    Abstract: According to some embodiments of the invention, a robot-assisted ultrasound system includes a first ultrasound probe, a robot comprising a manipulator arm having a tool end, and a second ultrasound probe attached to the tool end of the manipulator arm. The robot-assisted ultrasound system further includes a robot control system configured to control at least one of a position or a pose of the second ultrasound probe based on a contemporaneous position and pose of the first ultrasound probe, and an ultrasound processing and display system configured to communicate with at least one of the first and second ultrasound probes to receive and display an ultrasound image based on the first and second ultrasound probes acting in conjunction with each other.
