Does the UTC scanner offer normal ultrasonography as well? 17 August 2015

The UTC scanner makes use of a modified Terason ultrasound scanner to obtain the raw ultrasound data for analysis. The Terason scanner is however still a fully functional high quality ultrasound scanner which can accept a range of high-resolution transducers and has full Doppler options.

The probe used for UTC imaging is a regular ┬áT-probe as used in MSK in the 5 – 12 Mhz range and can be detached from the Tracker within half a minute.

Thus next to Tissue Characterisation, the UTC scanner can be used for regular ultrasonography as well.
