The Phantom probe may only be purchased by a medical professional; Phantom is not available directly to consumers.
Phantom offically supports the latest OS X release (High Sierra) and the previous version (Sierra). It may also work on older releases but is not guaranteed to do so. Some Mac computers may not have a USB port, in which case a USB adapter is necessary (sold separately).
Because Phantom is designed specifically for ultrasound workflows, it
does not open arbitrary DICOM files. It instead opens files created
in Phantom with the file extension
.phantom. These Phantom files
can be exported to DICOM from within the app.
Not directly. However, Phantom will export DICOM files, which can be uploaded to your PACS server.
For now, Phantom only supports standard two-dimensional B-mode imaging.
Phantom works with our general purpose 3.5 MHz probe. The app will only work with probes specifically designed to work with Phantom, which can be purchased here.
By default, files saved from Phantom are uncompressed. To save disk space, you may compress the files in Finder on your Mac:
Navigate to the file you would like to compress in Finder.
Right click on the
.phantom file and select "compress 'your-file.phantom'".
This will create a compressed (zipped) file with extension
This file is stored using less disk space, so may be more
convenient for sharing or long term storage.
