Sound Technology

A global leader in the design, development and production of diagnostic medical ultrasound transducers

Sound Technology ultrasound transducers

Sound Technology provides superior transducer technology to OEMs and clinicians for a wide range of ultrasound applications including radiology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery. Sound Technology, part of Analogic's ultrasound group, provides products and solutions that create value for both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and clinicians.

With more than 25 years of experience developing ultrasound transducers for the medical industry, we have developed a wide portfolio of product platforms that address the most challenging requirements of the latest ultrasound imaging technologies and clinical applications.

Markets

Industry trends such as the growth in patient-centric healthcare, decrease in equipment costs, and miniaturization of ultrasound equipment, are driving the creation of new market segments. No longer limited to medical diagnostics, ultrasound probes are used for new applications in treatment, monitoring, and interventional guidance.

Future Innovations

We target our innovation efforts and plan our technology roadmap based on market needs. We are committed to supporting the ever-increasing demand for new specialized applications, portable systems, and superior image quality. Innovative manufacturing processes allow us to minimize the size of our arrays while maintaining superior performance.

Transducer Designs

Despite the trend toward reduction in size and cost of medical diagnostic ultrasound systems, high image quality remains a critical requirement. New imaging techniques such as elastography, compounding, and harmonic imaging require superior acoustic performance. We provide the best trade-off between complex transducer designs and acoustic performance.

Our portfolio of transducers includes:

  • Micro convex arrays
  • Linear arrays
  • Convex arrays
  • 3D/4D mechanical probes
  • Phased arrays
  • Doppler transducers
  • 3D and 4D endocavity probes for real-time volumetric imaging
  • Biplane endocavity probes
  • Probes for minimally invasive surgery
  • High-frequency phased arrays for pediatric and neonatal applications
