Notice of Removal: High speed clinical Strain measurements
High speed ultrasound imaging is a new imaging method particularly applicable to cardiology. At Duke we have developed a real time high speed imaging system capable of producing up to 2500 images per second while maintaining the live imaging feature so essential in clinical scanning. For high speed 2D the Duke system, T5, uses 96 transmitters and 96 receivers at 32:1 parallel processing in conjunction with a 96 element 3.5 MHz linear array measuring 21 by 14 mm. Images are displayed at 60 images per second and up to 20 seconds of high speed data can be stored to permit immediate slow motion playback.
