Ultrasonic imaging

View this topic in
Ultrasound is cyclic sound pressure with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing. Although this limit varies from person to person, it is approximately 20 kilohertz (20,000 hertz) in healthy, young adults. (Wikipedia.org)

Performance of vibro-acoustography in detecting microcalcifications in excised human breast tissue: a study of 74 tissue samples

A. Alizad; M. Fatemi; L. E. Wold; J. F. Greenleaf IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, 2004

X-ray mammography is the principal modality used today for detection of breast microcalcifications and breast lesions associated with breast cancer. X-ray mammography, however, is ionizing and its sensitivity is greatly reduced in dense breasts. Hence, alternative noninvasive and nonionizing breast imaging tools that can aid physicians to better diagnose early-stage breast lesions are of great interest. Vibro-acoustography is a novel ...

A respiration correction method for real-time ultrasound image fusion with pre-acquired 3D dataset

Lei Zhu; Minglei Yang; Jingang Kang; Hui Ding; Guangzhi Wang 2013 IEEE International Conference on Medical Imaging Physics and Engineering, 2013

Ultrasound image fusion has been widely used in interventional surgeries, providing surgeons both detailed structural information via CT/MRI and real- time ultrasound information. However, patient respiration induced quasi- periodic organ motion usually leads to unacceptable registration and fusion errors. In this paper, we propose a method to build a patient specific respiratory motion model and make respiration displacement correction accordingly. ...

Precise time-of-flight calculation for 3-D synthetic aperture focusing

Henrik Andresen; Svetoslav Ivanov Nikolov; Jorgen Arendt Jensen IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 2009

Conventional linear arrays can be used for 3-D ultrasound imaging by moving the array in the elevation direction and stacking the planes in a volume. The point-spread function is larger in the elevation plane, because the aperture is smaller and has a fixed elevation focus. Resolution improvements in elevation can be achieved by applying synthetic aperture focusing to the beamformed-in-plane ...

  • No title

    This book provides an introduction to the principles of several of the more widely used methods in medical imaging. Intended for engineering students, it provides a final-year undergraduate- or graduate-level introduction to several imaging modalities, including MRI, ultrasound, and X-Ray CT. The emphasis of the text is on mathematical models for imaging and image reconstruction physics. Emphasis is also given to sources of imaging artefacts. Such topics are usually not addressed across the different imaging modalities in one book, and this is a notable strength of the treatment given here.

  • Biomedical EM, Optics, and Ultrasound

    This chapter discusses some key formulations in biomedical electromagnetics (EM). Extensive work has been reported on static through terahertz coupling to bodies near fields, cell phones, specific absorption rate (SAR), narrow and UWB pulse in biological systems. The chapter considers specific absorption rate (SAR) and heat diffusion in tissues. It describes the diffusion approximation of the radiative transfer theory. In the diffusion approximation, the specific intensity has a broad angular spectrum and therefore the diffused wave cannot be focused into a small volume. There is a way to focus the diffused wave, but the focusing requires constructive interference near the focal point and destructive interference elsewhere. The chapter also discusses fundamentals of ultrasound scattering and imaging of tissues and blood. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was introduced to obtain noninvasive images of biological images of biological tissues with resolutions of 1‐15 μm.
