Ultrasound technology and subsystems developer Cephasonics has partnered with Orcasonix to develop a new ultrasound prototype.

Orcasonix used the Cephasonics cQuest Cicada platform to develop the Orca-1, and plans to commercialize the system in 2014 and go to volume production with the recently announced cQuest Dragonfly system. Orcasonix is showcasing its new technology in Cephasonics' booth at RSNA 2013 in Chicago.

Orcasonix developed an ultrasound imaging system with depth-independent resolution that uses an approach of generating CT-like images from sound echoes. The technology enables an extremely low-cost hardware implementation with a virtually unlimited number of channels at a lower cost, Cephasonics said.

The Orca-1 will be the first in a planned family of imaging systems, the company said.
