MRI-compatible focused ultrasound system for clinical MR scanners
The LP-100 is a versatile focused ultrasound system that operates in a clinical MR scanner.
Compatible with MRI systems from all major vendors (Phlips, Siemens, GE) at both 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla
3-axis motorized positioning system using non-magnetic piezoceramic motors
Calibrated focused ultrasound transducer with optional integrated cavitation detector
Arbitrary function generator for continuous or burst-mode sonications
50 Watt RF amplifier (upgradeable to 100 Watt)
Directional RF power meter for monitoring forward and reflected power
Penetration panel filter to eliminate RF interference with MRI
PC with custom software for treatment planning and monitoring
Additional Options & Customizations
Blood-brain barrier (BBB) opening upgrade (includes transducer with integrated hydrophone and high-speed digitizer)
Hyperthermia upgrade (includes focused ultrasound transducer with 3D-printed sector-vortex lens & custom Matlab software for thermometry processing and control)
High-power (100W) RF amplifier
Precisely calibrated, custom focused ultrasound transducers. Contact us with your specific needs and we would be happy to develop a transducer that meets your research needs.
BBB Opening with FUS
The LP-100 can be used for focal, transient and non-invasive opening of the BBB.
Custom RF coils
Custom-built waterproof receive coils enable high-resolution imaging of target tissue during FUS exposures
A rack-mount cart enables transport of the LP-100 between the MRI and laboratory.
The LP-100 is designed for studies ranging from rodents to large animals making it a versatile platform for FUS research programs.
For brain studies on the LP100, a custom frame is available for repeatable positioning of the skull over the ultrasound transducer
Software enables import of DICOM MR images for image-guided targeting of FUS exposures
