Paper Abstract

We have introduced a three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound imaging system for use in a combined ultrasound and near-infrared (NIR) imager for breast imaging. Compared with commercial ultrasound scanners which can only provide a single 2-D cross-section image at one scan, this 3-D system can provide 3-D co-registered ultrasound images for constraining regions of interest for 3-D NIR imaging reconstruction at one scan. The 3-D high-resolution ultrasound system consists of a state-of-the-art 1.75D ultrasound array of 1280 elements manufactured by Tetrad Inc. We have developed corresponding circuitry to drive the 1.75D array. The circuitry consists of 1280 parallel transmission channels, a 1280-to-40 multiplexer and 40 parallel receiving/data acquisition channels. A Texas Instrument DSP board has been embedded to speed up on-board data processing. We have tested the 3-D ultrasound imaging system with a 3-D ultrasound calibration phantom.
