This project, Murgen, has a specific target of providing a technological kit to allow scientists, academics, hackers, makers or OSHW fans to hack their way to ultrasound imaging - below 500$ - at home, with no specific equipment required.
Today, we have achieved the electronic design of the kit and are having it made by a PCB assembly, we have physically tested it with our in house transducer and we're getting images!
To learn more, you can surf here, but you can also explore the internet and :
- Visit the main GitHub repo for the Murgen Project
- Or wander around the rest of the GitHub repo
- I'm setting as well a repo for a modular version of Murgen.
Disclaimer: though an engineer, this project is the first of its sort, I never did something related. Bear with us, and the discovery process – but I'm happy to learn on the way =)
Disclaimer #2: ultrasound raises questions. In case you build a scanner, use caution and good sense!
Disclaimer #3: This project is not part of echopen.
