Pacific Northwest X-Ray Inc.

       General Purpose Urethane Ultrasound Phantom.       


Computerized Imaging Reference Systems, Inc! The Model 042 General Purpose Urethane Ultrasound Phantom provides an alternative solution for ultrasound quality assurance. It is ideal for monitoring system performance over time.

The Model 042 is constructed from a proprietary urethane matrix and housed within a rigid PVC container with three separate scanning windows. The three scan windows allow the same targets to be imaged at multiple depths thus increasing the functionality of the phantom. The Model 042 is a compact, lightweight, durable tool ideal for ultrasound system consistency checks. It allows for depth of penetration, uniformity, distance calibration, resolution and lesion detectability assessment.

All CIRS QA phantoms, including the Model 042, are sold with a user manual, carry case and a certificate of compliance. Please note, that because the urethane has a speed of sound = 1430 m/s, the Model 042 should not be used to assess absolute system performance. The Model 042 is sold with a four-year warranty.

       General Purpose Ultrasound Phantom.       


Computerized Imaging Reference Systems, Inc! The CIRS Model 054GS General Purpose Ultrasound Phantom offers all the features of the original Model 054 but now contains gray scale targets and improved sensitivity targets that exceed the phantom requirements outlined in the ACR accreditation program.

The Model 054GS is constructed from the patented solid elastic material, Zerdine® (1). Zerdine® is a durable, reliable and accurate tissue mimicking material. The Model 054GS background material mimics the acoustic properties of soft tissue. A removable water well and endocavity cover extends the use of the phantom by allowing evaluation of all transducer configurations: linear, curvilinear and intercavity.

Comes standard with a robust housing, rugged carry case, 4-year warranty, user guide, and data sheet.

           UltraiQ Q/A Software for Diagnostic Ultrasound.       


    Computerized Imaging Reference Systems, Inc! AFFORDABLE "TURNKEY" SOLUTION FOR DAILY MACHINE QA

    UltraiQ Software brings automated phantom image analysis to diagnostic ultrasound.

    Ultrasound quality assurance ensures system performance over time and catches degradation in image quality before it affects the diagnostic value of the clinical ultrasound exam. Yet, establishing a QA program can be time consuming and cumbersome. Worse, many system parameters must be subjectively measured, resulting in a high degree of inter-observer variability.

    UltraiQ solves these problems with easy-to-use software that can be purchased with either the CIRS Model 040GSE or Model 054GS. It objectively measures ultrasound image QA parameters and provides faster, more accurate assessments. UltraiQ quantitatively and automatically evaluates dynamic range, axial resolution, lateral resolution, caliper distance, dead zone, and depth of penetration.

    UltraiQ Software can be used with any ultrasound system. Customizable reporting and trending functions make it easy to monitor system performance over time. The intuitive user interface provides guidance for making measurements. After the initial set-up, subsequent measurements can be automatically performed within minutes.

    Automated Ultrasound QA in 5 Easy Steps

    Acquire - UltraiQ is pre-loaded with target maps for CIRS Model 040GSE and 054GS. Only a few phantom images need to be acquired in order to calculate all ultrasound QA parameters.

    Import - UltraiQ supports the importing of DICOM, BMP and JPEG images. These images can be imported from a local hard disk, a network location, USB stick or frame grabber. In the case of DICOM images, the metadata of the files are used to collect data about the ultrasound device, transducer and image calibration.



    Measure - UltraiQ has the ability to measure the following parameters:
  • Dynamic range
  • Axial Resolution
  • Lateral Resolution
  • Caliper distance
  • Dead Zone
  • Depth of Penetration
  • These measurements are displayed in numeric and graphical form and are easily exported. Less than five minutes is required to import and analyze images for a single machine.

    Report - Measurement values can be saved in a report. Reports are completely customizable. A report contains just the information you need. A maximum of five measurements can be averaged into the final result of a QA session, for a balanced result. After adding a second measurement to your initial measurement, a trend analysis graph will be displayed. This means that you can easily trace a change in performance of your ultrasound machine over time. These graphs will be automatically updated once you export a new measurement using the Excel export function of UltraiQ.   

    Export - A report can be printed or exported as either a PDF, Excel, or a CSV file. This way, your measurements can be archived in your administration. All reports that are generated are also automatically saved locally, which enables you to view them at any time in the future.

    WHY USE ULTRAIQ?
    1. Perform objective assessment of critical system parameters in minutes.
    2. Fully compatible with CIRS Model 040GSE and Model 054GS
    3. Report system performance over time to identify trends






    4. Provide accurate quanitifiable system measurements
    5. Discover problems before major equipment malfunctions occur and patient scans are compromised
