SDK 6.X comes with executable Texo demo file located at \sdk\bin\texo_demo_qt.exe

Alternately, Qt Creator can be used to compile the GUI demo using the steps provided at the Qt Creator page.

Interface (6.0)[edit]

The Texo interface includes the individual channel information (RF signal), the beamformed image, some parameters to change and the option to save the data.

  • 2) RF signal from each channel.

  • 5) Probe selection.
  • 6) Frequency of the image (frames per second FPS).

Setup[edit]

  • Run the Texo_demo_qt.exe on Ultrasonix machine and make sure that Sonix Exam program is turned off.
  • Click on the Initialize tab on the top and make sure the Mian Board and PCI Card are set correctly based on your system.
  • Press the Power button and wait for the Texo to initialize.
  • Select the probe (if more than one connected).
  • Click on the Run button (imaging will start).
  • Click on the Stop button (imaging will stop).

If you change any image parameter, press the "Apply Changes" button every time. Guide for the function of each parameter can be found in Texo Parameters.

Interface (6.1)[edit]

The following figure shows the main user interface of the Texo Demo Qt software (6.1):

With this version:

  • The user can display the RF image both horizontally and vertically using Transpose RF check box.
  • The user can scroll through different frames when the imaging is stopped using thecine scroll.
  • Sliders on the left can be used to help with visualization of different channels. Slider on the bottom plus the span ratio can also be used to control the axial zoom for different channel display in real-time.
  • The software also allows the user to store the RF data into .rf files with proper header information when the imaging is stopped. This stored .rf file can then be processed by the Amplio Demo Program for generating B-mode images off-line. The save button will save all the frames in the buffer into TexoData.rf file in the same folder as the executable file.
