Ultrasound: Modular platform has versatile uses

Interview with Steffen Tretbar, Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBMT)

Underwater sonar images or examinations of the pregnant abdomen – ultrasounds have various applications. To avoid having to develop an entirely new system for each application, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering have created a modular ultrasound platform. Their system covers a wide range of applications.
