Imaging Core Facility
The CRC currently has one ultrasound unit that is available for research utilization.
GE Vivid 7 with multiple probes
This unit is state of the art for ultrasound imaging and specifically designed for cardiac and peripheral vascular imaging. Matric array probes are available for these activities including a Matrix 12 linear for peripheral vascular work and a Matrix 3 sector for cardiac evaluations. This unit can also be used for general abdominal as well as obstetric and gynecologic imaging.
Additional probes include a endovaginal (3-8 multiHz), small parts linear (10 mHz), curvilinear (2-5 multiHz) probes and 5 and 7 MHz sector probes .
GE Echopak Ultrasound Reader
The core facility includes a GE Echopak ultrasound reader with DICOM optical disk storage and off-line analysis.
