Ultrasonic imaging

  • Medical Ultrasonic Imaging

    This chapter contains sections titled: Echolocation, Sonar for Submarine Detection, Echoes from the Body, Basic Equipment, Health Effects, Conclusion, Review Questions, Problems

  • Ultrasonic Imaging Using the PulseEcho Technique

  • Ultrasonic Imaging

  • Introductory Medical Imaging

    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. Table of Contents: Introduction / Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging / X-Ray CT / Ultrasonics / Pulse-Echo Ultrasonic Imaging / Doppler Velocimetry / An Introduction to MRI

  • CMOS Ultrasound Sensor

    This chapter presents a two‐channel ultrasound sensor unit cell as the analog front‐end (AFE) for 320 x 320 capacitive micro‐machined ultrasound transducer (CMUT) array towards high‐frequency 3‐D ultrasound medical imaging applications. The first AFE IC is used to drive the transmitting CMUT with a high‐voltage (HV) signal, while the second AFE IC is placed close to the receiving CMUT in oil to amplify the weak current signal resulting from the echo signal. The ultrasound image sensing system is ultimately targeted for 3‐D ultrasound bio‐microscope application to obtain a high‐resolution image of a patient's eye to diagnose glaucoma with high frame rate while minimizing the discomfort given to the patient. The chapter demonstrates the HV, high‐frequency two‐channel AFE IC cell for CMUT interface, and highlights that it can be utilized as a unit cell for future 2‐D multi‐array AFE IC development for 3‐D high‐resolution ultrasound systems.

  • 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.
