ultrasound probes on medical imagery purposes

Hi,

Is there any open source ultrasound probes devices ? More generally, does anybody knows about ultrasound open source hardwares (ideally linux based) to be used on medical imagery purposes ?

Best, Newben

"Medical" and "open source" are very uncomfortable concepts for me, when combined. I'd be very surprised any manufacturer would warranty such equipment, and I don't know how you'd get any kind of compliance certification. I'm pretty sure Atmel distance themselves from medical uses of their processors.

ideally linux based

This is an arduino forum so where is the arduino in this?
