Abstract

Ultrasound images can be difficult to assess, because of the limited resolution and view-dependent artefacts that are inherent to the small aperture transducers used clinically. An extended aperture has the potential to greatly improve imaging performance. This work introduces a fully coherent multi-transducer ultrasound imaging system, formed by two ultrasound transducers that are synchronized, freely located in space with a common field of view and transmit plane waves. Through coherent combination of the different transducers, a larger effective aperture is obtained and then an improved final image. First phantom images produced using this technique are presented here.
