Tristan Technologies, Inc. TruckSQUID™ system for mobile fetal magnetocardiography (fMCG)

TRISTAN TECHNOLOGIES The TruckSQUID ™ is a unique system for fetal magnetocardiography (fMCG) measurements. It allows the clinician to analyze a fetus rapidly for electrophysiologic abnormalities such as fetal arrhythmias. This system is the first clinical mobile system that provides full intrauterine characterization of a fetus with life-threat ening heart conditions.

  • 21 SQUID channels configured as 7 vector gradiometers, 20 mm di-  meter coils with 8 cm baseline to maximize captured fMCG infor- mation.
  • Small probe profile with 20 mm s ensor-to-patient standoff for easy positioning in close proximity to fetus.
  • Gantry movement offers four degr ees of freedom for patient accom- modation
  • Uses proprietary technology to bring the sensor coils very close to the subject to increase signal/noise performance
  • Optional echo/Doppler subsystem for simultaneous detection of he- modynamic and electrophy siologic abnormalities
