Paper Abstract

The value of the use of computers in ultrasound for improving image quality and provid-ing more scan data has been speculated on for some time. This paper describes a micro-processor based B-Scan system in which the microcomputer plays a key role in improving sys-tem resolution, dynamic range, and ease of operation. The way the computer interacts with the system is discussed in detail, comparisons with conventional systems are made, and clinical results are shown.
