Software, Ultrasonic Scanning
Definition : Software designed to operate computed ultrasonic scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of ultrasonic scanning systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements performed during the scanning procedure and the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Ultrasonic scanning system software is usually not available separate from the ultrasonic system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated ultrasonic scanning system software is available for a variety of different procedures (e.g., small parts, endoscopy) and/or applications (e.g., mammography, ophthalmology, cardiology).
