Aberration and second harmonic imaging

Abstract

Simulations are presented which indicate that imaging at the second-harmonic frequency does not solve the problem of ultrasonic wave aberration. The nonlinearity of acoustic wave propagation in biological tissue is routinely exploited in medical imaging, since the larger signal-to-noise ratio leads to better image quality in many applications. The major… (More)
