Paper Abstract

Although water delay B-scanners were first developed in the early 1950's, they proved to be quite inflexible and awkward for the patient, who was actually submerged in a water tank. Since the mid 1960's water offset ultrasonic techniques have been refined at the Ultrasonics Institute of the Australian Government. National Acoustics Laboratories. There, the efforts of Dr. George Kossoff have resulted in the production of a practical B-scanning system (1,2). It is called the U.I. (Ultrasonics Institute) Octoson.
