OEM TRANSDUCERS

Sound Technology Transducers

A Global Leader in the Design, Development, and Production of Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound Transducers

Sound Technology provides superior transducer technology for a wide range of ultrasound applications including radiology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery. Sound Technology, powered by Analogic, provides products and solutions that create value for both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and clinicians. With more than 25 years of experience developing ultrasound transducers for the medical industry, we have developed a wide portfolio of products that meet the most challenging requirements of the latest ultrasound imaging technologies and clinical applications.

Design Innovations

We focus our innovation efforts and plan our technology roadmap based on market needs and we are committed to supporting the ever-increasing demand for new specialized applications, portable systems, and superior image quality. Innovative manufacturing processes allow us to minimize the size of our arrays while maintaining superior performance as outlined below.

  • Image Quality – Image quality remains one of the primary attributes in diagnostic applications. We continuously investigate new materials and acoustic architectures to provide higher performance at a lower cost.
     
  • Miniaturization – The miniaturization of ultrasound systems is changing the boundaries between transducers and electronics. To address this market need, we are developing new interconnection technologies that allow us to meet the most demanding packaging requirements.
     
  • Portability – Portable systems placed in new clinical settings require transducers that can withstand demanding mechanical and chemical conditions. During development we continuously integrate design features that provide robustness without compromising acoustic performance.
     
  • Volumetric Imaging – Volumetric imaging has become standard practice in several diagnostic applications. Our in-handle controller (patent-pending) electronic chip is our latest innovative technology to enable lowest interfacing of our 3D/4D probes with virtually every ultrasound system. 

Transducer Designs

Despite the trend toward reduction in size and cost of medical diagnostic ultrasound systems, high image quality remains a critical requirement. New imaging techniques such as elastography, compounding, and harmonic imaging require superior acoustic performance. Our state of the art acoustic architectures allow us to offer the best match to your application, your market, and cost goals.
