Sample text

The role of the beam former will be discussed in more detail later. Following the beam former, echo signal processing for imaging consists of amplifying the signals; applying time gain compensation to offset effects of beam attenuation; applying nonlinear, logarithmic amplification to compress the wide range of echo signal amplitudes (called the displayed echo dynamic range) into a range that can be displayed effectively on a monitor; demodulation, which forms a single spike-like signal for each echo; and brightnessmode (B-mode) processing.

The speed with which the pulse propagates through tissue, the depth setting of the scanner, the number of transmit focal zones, and the number of beam lines used to form a single image frame all intermix to establish the maximal possible image frame rate. Using the range equation, if the maximum depth setting is D, it takes a time (T = 2D/c) to receive echoes from the entire beam line. The amount of time for a complete image frame constructed with data from N beam lines is simply N × T, or 2 ND/c.

SIGNAL PROCESSING To create images, pulses of sound are transmitted along various beam lines, each followed by reception and processing of resultant echo 2 PHYSICS AND INSTRUMENTATION IN DOPPLER AND B-MODE ULTRASONOGRAPHY 27 No TGC With TGC A-mode B-mode FIGURE 2-8 Signal processing for imaging.
