A new method is introduced able to track the motion of a thin object, e.g. a wall, from a series of digital field data (e.g. images) in order to analyze field information corresponding to the moving position of the object. The method is based on the extraction of M-mode images where the wall can be ...

Gianni Pedrizzetti, Giovanni Tonti: Flow characteristic imaging in medical diagnostic ultrasound. Siemens Corporation, October 30, 2008: US20080269611-A1

Flow is characterized in medical diagnostic ultrasound imaging. The flow information over time for each spatial location may be broken down into component parts using Fourier analysis. For example, the average or steady state component of the flow at each location may be determined and used for imag ...
