Three-dimensional medical ultrasound
Hughes, Stephen W. (1999) Three-dimensional medical ultrasound. Acoustics Australia, 27(3), pp. 83-87.
A number of groups around the world are working in the field of three dimensional(3D) ultrasound (US) in order to obtain higher quality diagnostic information. 3D US, in general, involves collecting a sequence of conventional 2D US images along with information on the position and orientation of each image plane. A transformation matrix is calculated relating image space to real world space. This allows image pixels and region of interest (ROI) points drawn on the image to be displayed in 3D. The 3D data can be used for the production of volume or surface rendered images, or for the direct calculation of ROI volumes.
