Orcasonix Unveils Innovative Ultrasound Technology Built on Cephasonics cQuest Family of Ultrasound Systems
Date:12/2/2013

CHICAGO, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cephasonics, a technology-innovation leader with a game-changing embedded-ultrasound platform, and Orcasonix, an innovative ultrasound company specializing in imaging systems with depth-independent resolution, today disclosed details of the Cephasonics design-in. Orcasonix used the Cephasonics cQuest Cicada™ platform to develop its first prototype imaging system, the Orca™-1, and plans to commercialize the system in 2014 and go to volume production with the just announced cQuest Dragonfly™ system. Orcasonix will be showcasing its new technology in Cephasonics' booth at RSNA 2013 held here in Chicago from December 1-6.  Visitors can also see Cephasonics' latest technology, including Dragonfly.

According to Mati Shirizly, CEO of Orcasonix, "Cephasonics' unique business model and flexible cQuest Ultrasound™ hardware/software architecture provided us with a fast way to prove our technology, develop a prototype, and conduct initial clinical trials." He said that his company's innovative imaging techniques will dramatically improve the scanning of challenging patients, including general abdominal imaging of obese, overweight patients.

"The Orcasonix team achieved a major breakthrough in ultrasound imaging and we are pleased to partner with them both in demonstrating the unique capabilities of their depth-independent resolution imaging system and supporting their production ramp with our solutions," said Richard Tobias, CEO of Cephasonics.

Orcasonix developed a new ultrasound imaging system with depth-independent resolution that uses a novel patented approach of generating CT-like images from sound echoes. The technology enables an extremely low cost hardware implementation with a virtually unlimited number of channels at a fraction of the cost of current systems. Signal and image processing is extremely efficient, thus significantly reducing the cost of the ultrasound system's computer sub-system. The Orca-1 will be the first in a planned family of high-quality, cost-efficient imaging systems.
