High-frame-rate echocardiography using diverging transmit beams and parallel receive beamforming


Echocardiography is a widely used modality for diagnosis of the heart. It enables observation of the shape of the heart and estimation of global heart function based on B-mode and M-mode imaging. Subsequently, methods for estimating myocardial strain and strain rate have been developed to evaluate regional heart function. Furthermore, it has recently been… (More)
