The development of new procedures and techniques using ultrasound imaging requires the use of measured raw radiofrequent ultrasound data on commercial research platform. This is currently only available with limited access to system parameters and usability. We present a complete ultrasound research package including a software architecture based on the scalable DiPhAS multichannel ultrasound research hardware with free access to all system parameters for beamforming and signal-/image-processing, including multicore and GPU accelerated 2d scanconversion, 3d volume reconstruction and raw channel data reconstruction. The scalable hardware system and the software implementation is used in medical products with certification for clinical use and utilizes a unique closed loop control for implementation of new algorithms and procedures without losing the clinical validation.
