  • K-space is a frequency domain description of imaging systems and targets that can be used to gain insight into image formation. Although originally proposed in ultrasound for the analysis of experiments involving anisotropic scattering and for the design of acoustic tomography systems, it is particularly useful for the analysis of pulse echo ultrasonic imaging systems. This paper presents analytical and conceptual techniques for estimating the k-space representation of pulse echo imaging… CONTINUE READING
