Echocardiography (ECG) is routinely used in the clinical diagnosis of cardiac function. The anatomy of the mouse is similar to that of the human, and thus murine ECG has become an effective tool for the assessment of small animal models of human cardiac diseases. Unfortunately, clinical ultrasonic imaging systems are not suitable for murine cardiac imaging(More)
Echocardiography is a routine clinical procedure to diagnose cardiac functions. The organic structure of the mouse is similar to that of human so that murine echocardiography has potentially become an effective tool for the assessment of human cardiovascular disease. However, clinical ultrasonic imaging systems are not suitable for murine cardiac imaging(More)
The swept-scan technique adopted in high-frequency ultrasound involves mechanically scanning a single-element transducer to acquire image data. Unlike conventional step scanning, where the image data are acquired at discrete positions, the swept-scan technique acquires the image data while the transducer is continuously moving. Such a scanning method is(More)
The swept-scan technique (i.e., continuously moving a single-crystal transducer during pulse-echo data acquisition) is used in high-frequency, ultrasonic flow imaging. Relative to the conventional step-scan technique, swept scanning improves the rate of data acquisition and enables near-real-time, high-frequency color flow mapping. However, the continuous(More)
