Paper Abstract

Although ultrasound has been used in medicine since the 1930's, it is only recently that this technology has been widely used and its potential fully recognized. Medical ultrasonics is now in a period of rapid growth and is on the verge of making a significant impact on clinical medicine. The field provides challenging and important engineering problems, which are unique to medicine and biology. This review describes ultrasonic techniques presently used in the clinic, discusses several new techniques presently under development in the laboratory, and notes several promising procedures for processing ultrasonic data. The review is limited to pulse-echo techniques or parameter mapping systems which produce pictorial representations of the location of reflectors and scattering sites but which do not "image" in the generally accepted optical sense.
