Abstract

For the management of early stage atherosclerosis, the concept of metabolic syndrome is important. An inexpensive, ultra-mobile ultrasound imaging device is proposed for the accurate diagnosis of the atherosclerosis,. A linear probe capable of transmitting and receiving 64 ultrasound beams with the central frequency of 7.5 MHz is made. Echo images are displayed on a 5.7 inch LCD screen. The dimension of the device is 270×184×62 mm and the total weight including the probe is 1.9kg. For the popularization of the echo images for the patients ' education and motivation, ultrasound movie client systems were proposed using a mobile phone or PlayStation Portable™. The entire procedure proposed in the paper consists of the development of electronic devices and configuration of this system including to the training of community health nurses to use this device.
