The thin film phantom is a new type of ultrasound resolution test object. It consists of a thin planar substrate that is acoustically matched to the surrounding media. Precisely located scatterers on the surface of the substrate generate echo signals. The patterning of scatterers on the substrate allows echogenicity to be controlled as a function of position, which enables the production of a test object with highly reproducible and controllable scattering characteristics. We show that by… CONTINUE READING
