Ultrasound device tester

Mohd Nordin, Murni Norestri (2009) Ultrasound device tester. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Computer Science and Information Systems.



Nowadays, ultrasound technology is widely used for medical, industry, security, automotive and education purposes. For many application such as medical therapy, medical diagnostic and non destructive testing, accurate value of power generated by ultrasound transducer is very crucial. If the power generated is not accurate for those applications, problems which cause danger to patients might occur. A research shows that most of the 10,000 ultrasound machines in the United Kingdom fail to deliver within 30% of the correct power. To reduce the risk the ultrasound machine must be tested periodically and frequent. One of the approaches to test the machine is using ultrasound power meter. In this project, an Ultrasound Device Tester prototype is developed whereby it is a device to measure ultrasound power generated by ultrasound diagnostic and therapeutic machines. It consists of hardware and software part. Use case model is used to create the software part and polymer sensor is used as the measurement tool. Testing has been done to see whether the prototype is working properly or not and safe to use. As a conclusion, the prototype has been successfully developed. In order to embark on this project, a total funding RM 0.5 million is required. RM 0.15 million of the funding is required which for prototype development and business incorporation. Balance of the funding required is for intellectual property application, perform professional testing, local and international certifications application and pre- commercialization.
