Development of non-resonant transducers for ultrasound imaging

Proceedings of the IEEE 28th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (IEEE Cat. No.02CH37342), 2002

An unconventional non-resonant ultrasound transducer design is presented. The design was developed to facilitate fabrication of a single scanhead with fractional bandwidth in excess of 140% and pulse-echo sensitivity adequate for clinical applications. The results obtained from a previously developed theoretical model have been verified experimentally and indicate that a multilayer structure using a 56 micron thick PVDF polymer film ...

Electrostrictive transducers for medical ultrasonic applications

ISAF '96. Proceedings of the Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Applications of Ferroelectrics, 1996

Ultrasonic phased or sector array transducers were built using PMN-PT based electrostrictive materials. Large field-induced piezoelectric coefficients were obtained in these relaxor-type materials at relatively low DC bias (K/sub t/=0.43-0.50 at 5 KV/cm). The electrostrictive transducers have similar sensitivity and bandwidth compared to conventional PZT transducers. By choosing the appropriate composition and process, the sensitivity variation of electrostrictive transducers can ...

Four commercially available powder compositions (Pz21, Pz27, Pz29 and Pz34 from Ferroperm piezoceramics) were used. Tape casting technology is first described. The samples are characterized using electrical impedance measurements. Bulk samples of ...

  • Development of non-resonant transducers for ultrasound imaging

    An unconventional non-resonant ultrasound transducer design is presented. The design was developed to facilitate fabrication of a single scanhead with fractional bandwidth in excess of 140% and pulse-echo sensitivity adequate for clinical applications. The results obtained from a previously developed theoretical model have been verified experimentally and indicate that a multilayer structure using a 56 micron thick PVDF polymer film can operate in the frequency range from 2-15 MHz. Such bandwidth is not available using conventional, resonant transducer design. The basic design considerations are presented together with the results obtained and discussed in the light of fundamental design limitations. Current efforts aiming at improvements in the technology of the multilayer transducers and the extension of the design as applied to fabrication of super wideband transducer arrays are also discussed.

  • Electrostrictive transducers for medical ultrasonic applications

    Ultrasonic phased or sector array transducers were built using PMN-PT based electrostrictive materials. Large field-induced piezoelectric coefficients were obtained in these relaxor-type materials at relatively low DC bias (K/sub t/=0.43-0.50 at 5 KV/cm). The electrostrictive transducers have similar sensitivity and bandwidth compared to conventional PZT transducers. By choosing the appropriate composition and process, the sensitivity variation of electrostrictive transducers can be minimized to within 3 dB over the operating temperature range. The clinical results demonstrate the benefit of using electrostrictive materials to obtain elevation aperture control.

  • A complete range of tape-cast piezoelectric thick films for high frequency ultrasonic transducers

    Tape casting technology has been used to produce stand-alone thick films (i.e. 65 to 200 micrometers) of piezoceramics with net final shape for high frequency ultrasonic transducer applications. Four commercially available powder compositions (Pz21, Pz27, Pz29 and Pz34 from Ferroperm piezoceramics) were used. Tape casting technology is first described. The samples are characterized using electrical impedance measurements. Bulk samples of the same compositions are also characterized by a similar method. Electromechanical constants are compared and shown to deliver similar performance. Finally, high frequency transducer simulations (35 MHz) are performed with tape-cast sample values to evaluate performance for medical imaging applications.

  • 2F-6 Properties and Application-Oriented Performance of High Frequency Piezocomposite Ultrasonic Transducers

    Routine high frequency piezocomposite fabrication is now becoming possible. However, specialized characterisation techniques and reference results are absent from the literature and there is an urgent demand for characterisation to support the use of this material in transducers for biomedical diagnosis and non-destructive evaluation. In this paper, we report on a novel procedure for high frequency piezocomposite fabrication and results of intensive characterisation based on electrical impedance spectroscopy and other techniques. 1-3 composite structures have been made with circular PZT pillars with diameter and kerf down to 12 mum and 6 mum respectively, aspect ratio &gt; 3, volume fractions around 40% and active area of around 4 mm using a process which is capable of scalable commercial production. Experimental electrical impedance measurements have proved to be closely matched to one- dimensional models and piezocomposite material performance greatly exceeds that of other materials such as PVDF and LiNbO<sub>3</sub>. Comprehensive characterization of practical performance has been carried out including both through-transmission and pulse-echo measurements, generating single point results and high resolution 1D and 2D scans to produce 2D and 3D data sets, including tungsten wires test objects to determine axial and lateral resolution and transducer sensitivity. A typical prototype focused transducer is described here, with f- number of 4 and centre frequency of 37 MHz. Performance investigation yielded a through-transmission -3 dB bandwidth of 24 MHz, pulse-echo -6 dB bandwidth of 22 MHz, and lateral and axial resolutions of 250 mum and 150 mum respectively.

  • P3G-1 3D Time-Domain Modeling of Nonlinear Medical Ultrasound with an Iterative Green's Function Method

    A full-wave 3D time domain algorithm is presented that calculates the nonlinear acoustic wavefield of medical phased array transducers emitting an arbitrarily steered, focused and apodized beam. The algorithm can be used for computer simulation studies of the occurring second and higher harmonic wavefields in these configurations and for the optimization of the transducer design. It is based on the iterative employment of a Green's function (or impulse response) method with the nonlinearity included as a contrast source. Several comparisons with validated algorithms are made, showing a perfect agreement

  • New piezoceramic films for high resolution medical imaging applications

    The fabrication process of new PZT-PNN piezoelectric ceramics (Ferroperm Pz21) is first described. Thick films are obtained through a tape casting route with a thickness between 60 and 90 /spl mu/m. This material is designed essentially to be integrated in high frequency medical transducers where properties such as high permittivity and high coupling factor are required. The dielectric, elastic, piezoelectric and microstructure properties of this ceramic are characterized as a function of frequency and used to simulate the behavior of an imaging transducer operating around 30 MHz. The performance obtained shows that Pz21 ceramics are well adapted for high resolution medical imaging applications.
