DermaScan C

Our scanners feature realtime scanning, high resolution and software for advanced skin ultrasound imaging analysis. All DermaScan C configurations are built to provide optimal reliability and meet the latest international standards and safety requirements.

Decades of scientific use
For decades the DermaScan has been used in a broad range of research studies, clinical applications as well as Product R&D. It has been developed for the specific purpose of providing high resolution ultrasound images of the skin and underlying soft tissue.
For general purpose skin scanning we recommend a 20 MHz transducer providing a 60 by 150 micron resolution and in-depth penetration of 14 mm or 60 by 200 micron resolution and 23 mm penetration. For ultimate resolution and image definition a 50 MHz broadband option provides a 30 by 60 micron resolution and 7,1 mm max penetration.
All ultrasound probes offer linear scanning. Each individual transducer is carefully matched to the actual probe to ensure high precision operation and true position detection for unmatched image clarity and definition.
