The Influence of the PSF on Reconstructed B-Scan Images

  • J. Missun
Part of the Acoustical Imaging book series (ACIM, volume 14)


The formation of an ultrasound B-scan image can be described as a two-dimensional convolution of the object reflectivity with the Point-Spread-Function (PSF) of the device1.
