Paper Abstract

The application of pulse compression to medical ultrasound is discussed. This approach can decrease peak power and increase sensitivity in ultrasonic diagnosis. A prototype system with 8:1 compression ratio and 0.6 is resolution is described. Compressed echo wave-forms were obtained from an aluminum bar and from a human heart in vivo.
