Medical systems usually consider linear propagation of ultrasound, an approximation of reality. However, numerous studies have attempted to accurately simulate the nonlinear pressure wave distortion and to evaluate the contribution of harmonic frequencies. In such simulations, the computation time is very large, except for the method based on the angular… CONTINUE READING
