Abstract:

This proposal presents a practical study of the issues and tradeoffs involved in making an ultrasound array which is capable of being operated from a remote location. The classic performance vs complexity tradeoffs are presented. The parameters which canbe adjusted are listed, along with the performance variables which they affect. The number of elements and the form in which they are addressed is shown to affect the overall coverage and the flexibility that the physician has in selecting an activeaperture and beam direction. After determination of the imaging applications which the array will be used in, a thorough analysis of these variables is proposed, from which the feasibility will be determined and the specifications set for hardwaredevelopment under a Phase II program.
