Abstract

Over the past years, volumetric cardiac imaging has matured to a modality that can be used in daily routine clinical practice. However, despite the evolution of volumetric ultrasound systems with remarkable improvement in image quality, spatio-temporal resolution of the 3D data set remains limited and inferior to what can be obtained in 2D. Further development of volumetric ultrasound is thus required. However, the development of new beam forming techniques for 3D ultrasound (US) imaging requires an open, flexible and fully programmable US platform. To date, such systems are scarce and required (custom-made) dedicated electronics. Therefore, the aim of this report is to present a novel High channel Density Programmable ULtrasound System based on consumer Electronics (HD-PULSE).
