We present a method for creating three-dimensional haptic shapes in mid-air using focused ultrasound. This approach applies the principles of acoustic radiation force, whereby the non-linear effects of sound produce forces on the skin which are strong enough to generate tactile sensations. This mid-air haptic feedback eliminates the need for any attachment of actuators or […]

Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) is a popular technique for modeling computational electrodynamics, and is used within many research areas, such as the development of antennas, ultrasound imaging, and seismic wave propagation. Simulating large domains can however be very compute and memory demanding, which has motivated the use of cluster computing, and lately also the use of […]

The realistic simulation of ultrasound wave propagation is computationally intensive. The large size of the grid and low degree of reuse of data means that it places a great demand on memory bandwidth. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have attracted attention for performing scientific calculations due to their potential for efficiently performing large numbers of floating […]

Ultrasound is a flexible medical imaging modality with many uses, one of them being intra-operative imaging for use in navigation. In order to obtain the highest possible spatial resolution and avoiding big, clunky 3D ultra-sound probes, reconstruction of many 2D ultrasound images obtained by a conventional 2D ultrasound probe with a tracking system attached has […]

A miniature 3D tracked ultrasonic probe has been developed to acquire intra-articular cartilage images under arthroscopic surgical conditions. The aim is to detect cartilaginous lesions (arthritis) and quantify their precise sizes and locations to help the clinician in his diagnostic and his therapeutic decision making. The ultrasonic transducer is tracked by an optical sensor, which […]

The aim of this study was to design a pattern recognition system for assisting the diagnosis of breast lesions, using image information from Ultrasound (US) and Digital Mammography (DM) imaging modalities. State-of-art computer technology was employed based on commercial Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) cards and parallel programming. An experienced radiologist outlined breast lesions on both […]

The ultrasound videos are mainly contaminated by multiplicative noises but also contaminated with additive noises. As the past few decades, there are some studies to remove the noises from ultrasound images as in the JY model [1] and the variational model which removes both types of noises. However, denoising these noises from the ultrasound video […]

Rapid estimation of blood velocity and visualization of complex flow patterns are important for clinical use of diagnostic ultrasound. This paper presents real-time processing for two-dimensional (2-D) vector flow imaging which utilizes an off-the-shelf graphics processing unit (GPU). In this work, Open Computing Language (OpenCL) is used to estimate 2-D vector velocity flow in vivo […]

Deformation of tissue can be accurately estimated from radio-frequency ultrasound data using a 2-dimensional normalized cross correlation (NCC)-based algorithm. This procedure, however, is very computationally time-consuming. A major time reduction can be achieved by parallelizing the numerous computations of NCC. In this paper, two approaches for parallelization have been investigated: the OpenMP interface on a […]

The ultrasound image sequences are not only majorly contaminated by multiplicative noises but they are also usually contaminated with additive noises. As in the past few decades, there were some works, which had focused on removing the noises from ultrasound images, such as in the JY model [1] and in the variational model, which were […]

Ultrasound scanners are often used in medical diagnostics for visualising body parts without entering the body. An image is created by visualising reflections from an ultrasound pulse, transmitted into the body. Current scanners use a scanning which creates an image line by line, using focused pulses on each line separately. This method results in high […]

Our goal is to develop a complete ultrasound platform based on real-time SAFT (Synthetic Aperture Focusing Technique) GPU processing. We are planning to integrate all the ultrasound modules and processing resources (GPU) in a single rack enclosure with the PCIe switch fabric backplane. The first developed module (RX64) provides acquisition and streaming of 64 ultrasound […]
