Announcement for "Mechanical 3D linear array probe" Development

Nihon Dempa Kogyo Co.Ltd. today announced development of a "Mechanical 3D linear array probe" for advanced 3D/4D imaging applications in diagnostic ultrasound.This probe is targeted at breast scanning, but is also suitable for other clinical applications requiring high resolution 3D imaging over a wide field of view.

The mechanical 3D linear array probe is of novel design, with a sliding linear scan of a linear array. NDK's unique linear slide scan, the first of its type in the world, was developed to improved lateral resolution and increase diagnostic function compared to conventional circular scan geometries.

Additionally, the mechanical 3D linear array probe has a flat surface, allowing more even contact with soft tissue such as the breast.

NDK will start shipping a samples of this probe from June 2008.
