Ultrasonix Sonixtouch Q+ with GPS

The Ultrasonix Sonixtouch Q+ with GPS is designed as a user friendly, lightweight and mobile ultrasound machine that incorporates Quantum Plus Technology for excellent near field resolution and image quality.  The Sonix GPS is a needle guidance positioning system that uses an external electromagnetic-emitting device and sensors in the transducer and needle.  When used in conjunction with the C5-2/60 GPS or the L14-5/38 GPS transducers the current and projected needle path is displayed on the ultrasound monitor in real time.

Ultrasonix SonixDAQ

The SonixDAQ is a receive module that is used alongside the Ultrasonix Sonixtouch Q+ ultrasound machine.  It allows the researcher to collect raw pre-beamformed channel data in parallel.*
