A new ultrasound instrument for in vivo microimaging of mice.
Optimizing the radiation pattern of sparse periodic linear arrays
We have developed a method for designing sparse periodic arrays. Grating lobes in the two-way radiation pattern are avoided by using different element spacings on transmission and reception. The
Applications for multifrequency ultrasound biomicroscopy in mice from implantation to adulthood.
The multifrequency ultrasound biomicroscope is a versatile tool well suited to detailed study of the morphology of various organ systems throughout development in mice and for hemodynamic measurements in the low velocity range.
A history of medical and biological imaging with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) transducers
The exploitation of PVDF as a transducer material from its early beginnings for thyroid and breast imaging to its current well-established applications in ultrasound biomicroscopy is traced.
Hemodynamics in the mouse aortic arch as assessed by MRI, ultrasound, and numerical modeling.
It is found that the hemodynamically induced stresses on arterial endothelial cells are much larger in magnitude and more spatially uniform in the mouse than in the human, an effect that can be explained by fluid mechanical scaling principles.
Beam steering with pulsed two-dimensional transducer arrays
The authors have undertaken a theoretical investigation of the focusing and steering properties of pulsed 2-D arrays to characterize the parameters required for medical imaging, such as element size, spacing, and number of elements.
