Automated Analysis of Ultrasound Images
Date: January 2000
Client: Royal Perth Hospital/University of Western Australia, Dept of Medicine
Status: Completed, formed the basis for a packaged semi-commercial software product developed subsequently by the client and used in a number of medical research organisations around the world.
Project Description: ICON Technologies developed a LabVIEW software application for the client that automated the measurement of dynamic parameters (specifically blood vessel diameter) from archival videotapes of ultrasound images. The application combines serial control of a professional grade JVC video recorder with real-time acquisition and analysis of image frames.
It was about 5000 times faster, and 4 times more accurate than the manual system that it replaced.
Integration Products: NI PCI-1407 Image Acquisition Board, LabVIEW
