On 6th-9th September 2017 we will be displaying at the 2107 IEEE International Ultrasonic Symposium in Washington D.C., USA.

This year we will have something special… a brand new product offering!

You are welcome to come and see our offering:

  • A**US™ OEM – a miniature advanced ultrasound module with raw RF access (new product!)
  • USPlatform – a versatile ultrasound research platform
  • mUSG – a low-cost ultrasound platform

Additionally, we will be presenting two research papers:

  • P5-A2-6: Doppler-based Blood Pressure Measurement System for Patients Supported by a Continuous-Flow Rotary Left Ventricular Assist Device [.]
  • P1-B9-5: the Feasibility of Deep-Learning Algorithms Integration on a GPU-based Ultrasound Research Scanner [.]

Looking forward to seeing you there!

It is confirmed: from the 18th to the 21st September 2016, we will be attending the IEEE International Ultrasonic Symposium (IUS-2016) in Tours, France – for the very first time as a company!
We’ve got quite a bit of experience already; over the last 4 years, we’ve toured the very same exposition during symposiums in Prague, Dresden, Chicago and Taipei: promoting our POIG project and our home Institute (IFTR PAS).

As part of the exhibition, we will be showing the following products:

  • USPlatform – a versatile ultrasound research platform
  • mUSG – a low-cost ultrasound platform
  • uScan2 – a medical system for a high-frequency ultrasound scanner (an IFTR solution)

And while we’re at it, we will also present these research papers:

  • [PDF] 5J-2: A GPU-based Ultrasound Phased-Array Research System for Non-destructive Testing;
    Marcin Lewandowski, Mateusz Walczak, Beata Witek
  • [PDF] P2-C2-3: A High Frequency Ultrasonic Imaging of Welded Joints;
    Paweł Kustroń, Marcin Korzeniowski, Marcin Lewandowski, Beata Witek
  • [PDF] 3B-2: In Vivo Color Encoded Speckle Imaging of Arterial and Venous Flow Dynamics;
    Billy Y. S. Yiu, Mateusz Walczak, Marcin Lewandowski, Alfred C. H. Yu

Looking forward to seeing you there! Schedule of the exhibition available HERE.

us4us spin-off

In: Event

18 Sep 2015

Today, we have started a spin-off company!
We continue to hold ambitious plans for the further development and commercialization of the ultrasound platform designed as part of the POIG project.
The POIG itself is at its end, and with the day of 30/09/2015, it will be but history. Thanks to the project, we have created a new team and lab within the IFTR, and we have designed and succeeded at building our Platform.
It is now time to determine whether our know-how and platform have what it takes to make it on the market – and we sincerely believe they do!

The us4us project website is transforming into the official us4us company site.

us4us Ltd.

We have conducted initial tests of the complete Versetile Ultrasound Platform !!!
The developed, built and pre-tested electronic modules (RX64, CTRL96, TX192) have been connected into one unit. The implemented software allows to program functions of the device and carries out reconstruction as well as visualization of ultrasound images. Currently, we are testing the basic control functions and reconstruction algorithms for a plane wave.
The system is prepared to be shown this year in September at the exhibition of the conference IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (Chicago, USA).

CONGRATULATIONS to the whole team!
Thank you all for your commitment and belief in our success!

The visit in KIT

In: Event|Misc

28 Mar 2014

We had a visit to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) being invited by the German side. The talks were focused on the possibility of cooperation in the multi-channel systems of signal acquisition for the application in ultrasonic tomography. Unique features of our solution (ie. fast data transfer and processing technology using GPU processors) respond to the needs of the 3D ultrasound tomography device for breast examination (USCT) built in KIT.

Wizyta w KIT

Our laboratory has been facilitated with the calibrated flow standard. The system was designed and manufactured by our co-workers from IBIB PAN. The use of the specific design gear pump and calibration of the system enable generating a precise fluid of continuous and pulse flow within the range from 0.5 to 5 l / min. The standard will significantly support the testing as well as verification of the systems and Doppler algorithms.

I am pleased to announce that the main module of the mUSG system (the main module of the portable ultrasound device) has been launched. The module is responsible for: acquiring ultrasonic signals, control of transmit signals and communication with a PC.
The portable ultrasound platform was built in the “NCBR LIDER” Programme. It will enable the implementation of new methods of ultrasound imaging to provide a higher quality of visualization of human structures and organs. Due to a modern architecture of the processing and solutions the platform represents a competitive solution compared to available on the market devices.

Once again we took part in the annual scientific conference IUS (IEEE Ultrasonics). This time it was in Prague, 21-25.07.2013.
For the second time we presented at our booth: projects, conducted research and offer for electronic systems developed by our Team. The exhibition attracted a lot of interest. We hope that the established contacts will result in scientific cooperation and orders!

Thanks to the whole POIG Team for the exceptional commitment and job!

Success in Dresden

In: Event

30 Oct 2012

Our participation in the conference IUS 2012 in Dresden was a full success!
The show (organized by ourselves!) that promoted the carried out POIG project and our Team had a great interest. We distributed almost all promotional materials and established dozens of contacts. In addition to the exhibition, we astonished all (at least we think) by our scientific reports on a subject of the Project (4 presentations). Another IUS exhibition will be in Prague in July 2013 – you can expect us there.

BRAVO for the whole POIG team! (including in particular: Beata and Piotr’s fortitude; Magda was responsible for the organization and promotion; Ania for help in the text preparing)
