  • Patent number: 10324063
    Abstract: A method of measuring a property of a medium using ultrasound, comprising: transmitting one or more ultrasound pulses into the medium from one or more transmitters and receiving at least a first echo signal and a second echo signal from within the medium at one or more receivers, wherein the first and second echo signals correspond to first and second pulse transmission paths within the medium from the one or more sources to the one or more receivers, the second path being different from the first path; and using the characteristics of the first and second echo signals together with an estimate of the property of the medium and a geometrical relationship between the first and second transmission paths to calculate a revised estimate of said property of the medium. By using two different beam paths within the medium, the first and second echoes will have had slightly different interactions with the medium.

  • Patent number: 9770521
    Abstract: An aqueous ultrasound contact fluid includes a pharmaceutical grade triglyceride and a pharmaceutically acceptable emulsifier and the use of the ultrasound contact fluid in an intraoperative or interventional ultrasound imaging procedure. A method for intraoperative ultrasound imaging includes filling an aqueous ultrasound contact fluid into a body cavity. The aqueous ultrasound contact fluid is a composition comprising a pharmaceutical grade triglyceride and a pharmaceutically acceptable emulsifier and optionally a pharmaceutically acceptable humectant, and the triglyceride content is in the range of 8-240 g/1000 ml composition contact fluid and the amount of emulsifier is 0.4-18 g/1000 ml composition contact fluid, and optionally a humectant in the amount of 1.2-30 g/1000 ml. The method further includes obtaining an ultrasound image of a body region that comprises at least part of the body cavity filled with the aqueous ultrasound contact fluid.

  • Publication number: 20080138149
    Abstract: The present invention concerns an adjustable arm rest with a support face (1), an operating lever (3), a joint apparatus adapted for being secured to an arm rest carrier (7) and a locking apparatus. The joint apparatus allows pivoting of the arm rest about three axis, and the at least one operating lever (3) locks or re-leases the joint apparatus and thereby the placement of the apparatus in relation to the arm rest carrier (7) in the three axes. Furthermore, a lockable joint apparatus is described.
