Paper Abstract

We present an open-source MATLAB toolkit for ultrasound calibration. It has a convenient graphical user interface which sits on top of an extensive API. Calibration using three different phantoms is explicitly supported: the cross-wire phantom, the single-wall phantom, and the Hopkins phantom. Image processing of the Hopkins phantom is automated by making use of techniques from binary morphology, radon transform and RANSAC. Numerous calibration and termination parameters are exposed. It is also modular, allowing one to apply the system to original phantoms by writing a minimum of new code.
