Paper Abstract

The quality and convenience of the display of ultrasound B-scan images is critical to their diagnostic usefulness. The perceived dynamic range of present displays is too limited, and display artifacts are sometimes encountered. Many displays do not permit the user to optimize the image presentation by varying image parameters, to store and retrieve images, to display multiple images simultaneously, to label images easily, and to carry out other actions which increase the usefulness of a display system. And those that do have these capabilities are too expensive to be used routinely. This paper discusses the needs of a display system in detail and reports the design of a display system of reasonable cost which meets these needs. This system includes both a basic display module which is useful for many medical imaging applications and an inter-face between it and an ultrasonograph.
