Questions of Safety and Performance of Ultrasound in Medicine, Bonn, Germany, in April 2000

First Announcement Intern. workshop:
Questions of Safety and Performance of Ultrasound in Medicine, Bonn, Germany, in April 2000

10.April-12.April 2000, Bonn

Educational Seminars following on April 12-14.


Medical ultrasound is an established and expanding sector in public
health. The easy appearance of many medical routine applications may
however frequently hide a difficult background of todays technologies
and its use, giving rise to specific interdisciplinary questions or
problems. This specialised workshop is devoted to the following main
topics: Assessment and quantification of risk (Bioeffect-Potential of
ultrasonic output) versus benefit (performance) of relevant ultrasonic
systems in medicine ; interactions with research in physics and
engineering and new commercial developments ; impact of scientific
results on regulatory activities in health care and achieved quality
levels . The workshop contributes to substantiate existent faults and
future tasks in Medical Ultrasound.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
