The aim of the vector Doppler technique is the quantitative reconstruction of a velocity field independently of the ultrasonic probe axis to flow angle. In particular, vector Doppler is interesting for studying vascular pathologies related to complex blood flows. A problem of vector Doppler is data representation in real-time that should be easy to(More)
A complete 3-D ultrasonic pulsed Doppler system has been developed to measure quantitatively the velocity vector field of a fluid flow independently of the probe position. The probe consists of four 2.5 MHz piezocomposite ultrasonic transducers (one central transmitter and three receivers separated by 120 degrees ) to measure the velocity projections along(More)
An experimental system was developed to acquire and visualise in real-time two-dimensional (2-D) velocity maps. Data acquisition is performed by using a modified commercial echograph based on a 5-MHz, 128-element linear-array transducer with electronic focussing and beam steering. Additional electronics were integrated into the echograph to implement a 2-D(More)
In this work we tackle the problem of applying to echographic imaging those synthetic aperture focusing techniques (SAFT) in the frequency domain commonly used in the field of synthetic aperture radars (SAR). The aim of this research is to improve echographic image resolution by using chirp transmit signals, and by performing pulse compression in both(More)
A real-time hardware software 2-D vector Doppler system has been realized by means of the FEMMINA platform. The system operates by performing two independent 1-D Doppler estimations on the scan plane of a linear array probe along different directions; the probe is connected to a commercial scanner. The reconstructed velocity is presented in real-time as(More)
Fast echographic multiparameter multi-image novel apparatus (FEMMINA), is a hardware and software platform dedicated to ultrasonic signal and image processing. FEMMINA is able to operate with sequences of radiofrequency (RF) frames. Its architecture is designed to be modular, expandable, and aimed at implementing different ultrasonic investigation(More)
In this paper the architecture of a hardware and software platform, for ultrasonic investigation is presented. The platform, used in conjunction with an analog front-end hardware for driving the ultrasonic transducers of any commercial echograph, having the radiofrequency echo signal access, make it possible to dispose of a powerful echographic system for(More)
