H-Scan Trajectories and Disease-Specific Imaging
Background Ultrasound imaging is based on the detection and interpretation of scattered ultrasound waves from tissues, and is used worldwide used for diagnostic purposes. Unfortunately, the traditional B-scan imaging technique used in 2D-imaging systems is not able to clearly differentiate fine details of inhomogeneous tissues. Additionally, measurements...

Noninvasive method for quantification of fat content in the liver
­Background The noninvasive quantification of fat content in the liver is a longstanding goal with major clinical significance. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (steatosis) is the most prevalent chronic liver disease, affecting approximately 25% of the global population, yet options for measuring and monitoring the progression of steatosis have...

Ultrasound Sonoelastographic Imaging by Crawling Wave
Applications:Change in the mechanical properties of tissue is a possible marker of disease. In this technology, the imaging modality of sonoelastography is used to examine the stiffness of tissue to discriminate normal from abnormal tissue types (such as carcinomas) by visualizing shear wave interference pattern motion (termed “crawling waves”)....

SURUS: Super-Resolution Ultrasound Imaging
Applications: The technology uses an inverse filter solution to eliminate the speckle phenomenon and poor resolution dependency on the pulse length and width, to produce SURUS (super-resolution ultrasound) images. This technology has applications for creating higher resolution images for ultrasounds, radar, sonar and other pulse-echo imaging systems. Advantages:...
