Unlock your biological data
Obtaining real-time image and pose data from the commercial ultrasound systems for research purposes is a challenging task. Many vendors require the completion of lengthy legal procedures to allow direct access to their devices. A few vendors offer open interfaces for data acquisition and control of their systems. These open interfaces enable advanced research work without administrative burden or custom hardware development. However, these open interfaces are all vendor-specific, therefore developers have to invest significant amount of time into making their software work with each device.
