Paper Abstract

This paper addresses some of the fundamental issues involved in the development of mathematical models for the generation of ultrasound pulse-echo data in the human body. These models provide a rational basis for the development of algorithms used for medical diagnosis. Models for transducers, wave propagation and scattering, and image formation are considered. Wave propagation models are based on a linear, weak scattering assumption. Examples of state-space models for parameter estimation and tissue classification are given.
