Modeling and direct reconstruction in ultrasound tomographyMS77

In medical applications of ultrasound tomography, the possibilities for transducer placement are constrained by the geometry of the human body.  In this talk, optimal transducer placement and excitation patterns will be discussed for several geometries, and their effects on image quality and computation time will be compared for simulated medical imaging data reconstructed using iterative and a direct (D-bar) method.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS77 - Advances in Ultrasound Tomography (2 parts)
