Estimation of acoustic impedance from multiple ultrasound images with application to spatial compounding

Wachinger, Christian; Shams, Ramtin; Navab, Nassir


Reflection of sound waves, due to acoustic impedance mismatch at the interface of two media, is the principal physical property which allows visualization with ultrasound. In this paper, we investigate reconstruction of the acoustic impedance from ultrasound images for the first time. Similar to spatial compounding, we combine multiple images to improve the estimation. We use phase information to determine regions of high reflection from an ultrasound image. We model the physical imaging...[Show more]
