Sonography software tools
Ultrasonic imaging is a mature and widely used medical diagnostic technology but it is also a field of intense research activity. Innovations are viewed with differing perspectives by the stakeholders- users, industrialists, regulators, and researchers and research funders. The more important recent developments include advances in transducers, scanning schemes, coded excitation, three-dimensional, high-resolution and high-speed imaging, contrast agents, harmonic, elasticity and strain imaging, point-of-care devices, computed tomography, thermoacoustic, photoacoustic, acousto-optic and Hall effect imaging.
