The accurate determination of the transfer function of ultrasound transducers is important for their design and operational performance. However, conventional methods for quantifying the transfer function, such as hydrophone measurements, radiation force balance, and pulse-echo measurements, are costly and complex due to specialized equipment...

Mapping corrosion depths along pipeline sections using guided-wave-based tomographic methods is a challenging task. Accurate defect sizing depends heavily on the precision of the forward model in guided wave tomography. This model is fitted to measured data using inversion techniques. This study evaluates the effectiveness of a recursive...

This paper presents a pitch-matched transceiver ASIC integrated with a 2-D transducer array for a wearable ultrasound device for transfontanelle ultrasonography. The ASIC combines 8-fold multiplexing, 4-channel micro-beamforming (μ BF) and sub-array-level digitization to achieve a 128-fold channel-count reduction. The μ BF is based on passive...

Ultrasound imaging is an attractive imaging modality due to its low-cost and real-time feedback, although it often falls short in image quality compared to MRI and CT imaging. Conventional ultrasound image reconstruction, such as Delay-and-Sum beamforming, is derived from maximum-likelihood estimation. As such, no prior information is exploited...

Volumetric echocardiography can potentially give a more complete picture of cardiac dynamics than its two-dimensional (2D) counterpart. Current clinical volumetric imaging probes have relatively low frame rates, and often require ECG gating to stitch together an entire volume. This makes measuring fast dynamics of the heart as well as imaging...

In contrast-enhanced echography, the simulation of nonlinear propagation of ultrasound through a population of oscillating microbubbles imposes a computational challenge. Also, the numerical complexity increases because each scatterer has individual properties. To address these problems, the Iterative Nonlinear Contrast Source (INCS) method...

Clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters (UFMs) are installed on the outside of the pipe wall. Typically, they consist of two single-element transducers mounted on angled wedges, which are acoustically coupled to the pipe wall. Before flow metering, the transducers are placed at the correct axial position by manually moving one transducer along the pipe...

While transcranial ultrasound imaging is a promising diagnostic modality, it is still hindered due to phase aberration and multiple scattering caused by the skull. In this paper, we compare near-field phase-screen modeling (PS) to a geometry-based phase aberration correction technique (GB) when an ultrafast imaging sequence (five plane waves...

This work describes an ASIC design for high-frame-rate 3D intracardiac echocardiography probes. The chip is the first to combine element-level high-voltage pulsers and time-gain-compensation analog frontends as well as subarray beamformers and in-probe digitization in a pitch-matched fashion. The integration challenge is met by a shared hybrid...

In this letter, a compact high-voltage (HV) transmit circuit for dense 2-D transducer arrays used in 3-D ultrasonic imaging systems is presented. Stringent area requirements are addressed by a unipolar pulser with embedded transmit/receive switch. Combined with a capacitive HV level shifter, it forms the ultrasonic HV...

Ultrasound insonification of microbubbles can locally enhance drug delivery by increasing the cell membrane permeability. To aid development of a safe and effective therapeutic microbubble, more insight into the microbubble-cell interaction is needed. In this in vitro study we aimed to investigate the initial 3D morphology of the endothelial...

In a recent study, we proposed a technique to correct aberration caused by the skull and reconstruct a transcranial B-mode image with a refraction-corrected synthetic aperture imaging (SAI) scheme. Given a sound speed map, the arrival times were calculated using a fast marching technique (FMT), which solves the Eikonal equation and, therefore...

An in vivo range verification technology for proton beam cancer therapy, preferably in real-time and with submillimeter resolution, is desired to reduce the present uncertainty in dose localization. Acoustical imaging technologies exploiting possible local interactions between protons and microbubbles or nanodroplets might be an interesting...

3-D contrast enhanced ultrasound enables better visualization of inherently 3-D vascular geometries compared to an intersecting plane. Additionally, it would allow the application of motion correction techniques for all directions. Both contrast detection and motion correction work better on high-frame rate data. However high-frame rate 3-D...

The integration of 2D ultrasonic transducer arrays and pitch-matched ASICs has enabled the realization of various 3D ultrasound imaging devices in recent years [1]-[3]. As applications such as 3D intravascular ultrasonography, intra-cardiac echocardiography, and trans-fontanelle ultrasonography call for miniaturization and improved spatial...

Intra-cardiac echography (ICE) probes (Fig. 32.2.1) are widely used in electrophysiology for their good procedure guidance and relatively safe application. ASICs are increasingly employed in these miniature probes to enhance signal quality and reduce the number of connections needed in mm-diameter catheters [1]-[5]. 3D visualization in real...
