The Stradwin 3.0 Freehand 3D Ultrasound system for Windows and Linuxis now available (ultrasound)
STRADWIN 3.0 THE FREELY AVAILABLE FREEHAND 3D ULTRASOUND SYSTEM
FOR WINDOWS AND LINUX IS NOW AVAILABLE
Freehand 3D ultrasound involves using some sort of position sensor to
track the trajectory of a conventional 2D ultrasound probe during a scan
and then using this position information to locate the 2D ultrasound
slices in 3D space.
* Runs under Linux using v4l2 video, or under Windows using DirectShow.
* Works with Polhemus Fastrak, Northern Digital Polaris or
Ascension MiniBird, LaserBird or Flock of Birds position sensor.
* Works with PAL/NTSC ultrasound image or radio frequency
ultrasound image input.
* Incorporates a fast, accurate, calibration facility that is
easy to use.
* Provides a real-time flat reslice tool that can be oriented
interactively at any angle. Also includes a tool to create
orthogonal reslice views.
* Has an easy-to-use manual segmentation facility and an
accurate volume measurement tool.
* Offers a facility for defining landmark points in the data
and using them to measure distances and angles.
* Incorporates a tool for calibrating a pointer which can be
used to locate external fiducial landmarks in 3D space.
* Has a tool for aligning the internal representation with an
external (isocentre) coordinate system. Reslice images
can then be produced parallel to one of the axes of this
* Has a novel "hands free" recording mode.
* Works with Doppler data.
* Uses an open file format and includes comprehensive do***entation.
