22 MHz ultrasound is an interesting tool to measure skin thickness and density in vivo with plenty of different applications.
The Ultrascan UC 22 is OEM made especially for C + K and our customers to complete the product range of skin testing parameters with an extremely economic, easy to handle and absolutely accurate ultrasound device for cosmetic research.
The measurement is based on ultrasound waves entering the skin and being reflected differently according to the different tissues. The reflected waves are transformed into electrical impulses and result in an image shown in 256 different colours in a B-scan.
With 22 MHz you can look 6-8 mm deep into the skin in high resolution. The system has many advantages:
Very economical, extremely accurate device to look into the skin in depths.
Easy to install and use, intuitive software, only connected by USBUC probe
The probe is made for easy handling and does all scans automatically without further movement by the user. The transducer goes linearly over the skin.
Only water is needed to receive a scan, no messy gel application. Foils are not necessary but can be used optionally together with regular ultrasound gel.
Continuous live scans, not only one single scan per measurement (video of 10 images per B-scan)
Automatic measurement between set lines of skin thickness in µm and skin density (ultrasound density in % and as a colour value between 0 and 256 a. u.) for the total image and split for epidermis/entrance echo and dermis.
In addition measurements of depth and width and length of lines and area (also drawn in freehand).
