Another Ghosh created a history in medical imaging. Here is How to Build DIY Ultrasound Machine Under 500 Bucks. Circuit diagram, schematic of DIY ultrasound machine included. Small companies can easily follow the IEEE Medical Device Standard, ISO Standards for production at more cheaper rate. There are Orthopaedics and Dentistry peoples who chair the 3D Medical Imaging and Standards of IEEE. You can perform web search and contact them for production. That is possibly important for development purpose. As you can see, radiologists are very angry :
Total a bigger F/OSS project is going to make other medical imaging stuffs Open Source.
How To Build DIY Ultrasound Machine
Original Project was for
And everything on GitHub :
List of buying is actually huge and it actually demands good grasp on DIY electronics work. You can try by buying the basic electronics parts but it is probably practical to ask the developer to build one for you. You can use basic electronic kits or use Beaglebone dev board and a probe. We created the infographics from the photographs by the developer. We hope you will promote his project.Advertisement
Basically hand held USG probes were hugely costly starting around $7000 or more. There were cheap Made in China stuffs but they were far from being reliable in terms of quality. As the whole stuff of hand held USG probes were glued together as end product, it was really difficult to guess anything. Phillips suddenly launched a hand held probe which worked with iPhone and Android mobiles. Phillips wanted to sell their “radiology service” in Pay-as-you-Go model, but it become crystal clear that not many stuffs are actually inside. We are no way saying that murgen open source has to do with Phillips phenomenon, but it was almost obvious that thing is going to be open source.
