The twinkling sign observed in ultrasound coded-excitation imaging (e.g., GE B-Flow) has been reported in previous research as a potential phenomenon to detect micro calcification in soft tissue. However, the mechanism of the twinkling sign has not been clearly understood yet. We conducted an in vitro experiment to clarify the mechanism of the twinkling sign by measuring a soft tissue-mimicking phantom with ultrasonic and optical devices. A soft tissue-mimicking phantom was made of poly(vinyl… CONTINUE READING
