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)

A novel hybrid technique for visual enhancement of medical ultrasound images

R. Vanithamani; R. Dhivya; S. Sharmili 2015 IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Computing Research (ICCIC), 2015

Ultrasound imaging has features like non-invasive nature, real time image formation capacity and relatively low cost, which makes this diagnostic tool attractive and hence has become an important imaging modality in medical diagnoses. However the usefulness of this imaging is degraded by the presence of speckle noise. Hence, speckle suppression in ultrasound images is essential for improving the image quality. ...


An application of the spectral kurtosis for early detection of subterranean termites

J. J. González de-la-Rosa; A. Moreno; A. Quirós; J. M. Guerrero; C. G. Puntonet 2007 15th European Signal Processing Conference, 2007

This paper deals with termite detection in a noisy environment using higher- order statistics (HOS). The results could be extrapolated to all impulse-like insect emissions. Sliding higher-order cumulants offer distinctive time instances, as a complement to the sliding variance, which only reveals power excesses in the signal; even for low-amplitude impulses. The spectral kurtosis reveals non-Gaussian characteristics (the peakedness of ...


Experimental ultrasonic communications through tissues at Mbps data rates

Andrew C. Singer; Michael Oelze; Anthony Podkowa 2016 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), 2016

Remote monitoring of patients using wireless capabilities increasingly plays an important role in healthcare and the communication with implanted medical devices (IMDs). In the case of IMDs, transmission is characterized by low peak power and low duty cycle to reduce the potential for adverse bio-effects. Currently, most IMDs use radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves to communicate through the body. The corresponding ...


Optical measurement of ultrasonic Poynting and velocity vector fields

T. A. Pitts; J. F. Greenleaf IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 2002

This report describes a method for estimating several wide bandwidth ultrasonic field parameters from optical measurements of the local, acoustically induced, refractive index perturbation in water. These parameters include Poynting and particle velocity vector fields as well as pressure and density fields at any temporal delay under mild (forward-propagating) assumptions on the angular plane-wave spectrum of the ultrasound field. A ...


Monitoring the setting of injectable calcium-based bone cements using pulse-echo ultrasound

J. Carlson; M. Nilsson; E. Fernandez; J. A. Planell 2002 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, 2002. Proceedings., 2002

The existing standards for determining the setting time of injectable bone substitutes suffers from poor reproducibility and subjectivity. We previously presented an ultrasonic pulse-echo technique that can follow the entire setting reaction on-line, without any mechanical manipulation of the sample. For calcium sulfate hemihydrate (CSH), the new method shows good agreement with the standards, but with much better reproducibility. One ...

    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.
