Paper Abstract

The ideal diagnostic instrument provides definitive data on the condition of a patient, causes him no harm or discomfort, and must be convenient, reliable, and economical for a physician or his paramedical associates to operate. Such an in-strument must, of course, be totally noninvasive or transcutaneous. Ultrasonic imaging systems exhibit all of the basic characteristics of an ideal diagnostic instrument and unmistakably offer enormous opportunities for further improvements in performance.
