Newer types of transducers have the capacity to provide anatomical structures with greater details and unmatched imaging analysis capacities.

Vermon brings our expert know-how to provide the most innovative and cutting-edge ultrasound imaging solutions to every type of client.

2D Arrays for research systems

Compatible with any research system, Vermon’s fully-populated matrix array probes typically feature 32×32 small, electrically isolated active elements arranged as 2D array.

The imaging technology is based on the use of advanced digital processing techniques, as well as advanced image formation algorithms to drive a large number of elements in the matrix configuration, providing both quantitative and qualitative 3D real-time volumetric data for preclinical ultra-fast and super-resolution imaging for your research projects.

Row-column arrays

Beyond fully populated 2D arrays, Row-Column Array (RCA) probes are a new generation matrix array alternative enabling the acquisition of 3D real-time volumetric data with a reduced number of elements and no prohibitive number of connections, typically going from 64+64 to 128+128 active channels. While a fully-populated NxN array requires N² connections, an RCA only requires 2xN connections.

Row-Column Array (RCA) probes are composed of two orthogonal 1D arrays, each connected with either the rows or the columns. This configuration results in a 2D transducer array, where each transducer element is identified by its row or column index. The beam can be steered electronically in two perpendicular directions (azimuth and elevation) and hereby acquire data from a volume.

Further investigations have shown that RCA technology holds promising potential compared to fully populated arrays, delivering good-quality B-mode images and Color flow with good resolution and contrast.

High frequency products

In the state of preclinical research, Vermon’s High-Frequency probes are perfectly suited to image at shallow depths with great detail for in-vivo tests in small animals.

Our range includes probes with center frequencies from 15MHz to 40.0MHz, designed to meet the stringent requirements of high-resolution imaging.
