Despite that ultrasound has been in existence for more than 100 years and is considered a mature technology by many, the field is constantly evolving. The history of ultrasound can be traced to L.Spallanzani. In 1790 he experimented with bats and found that they maneuvered through the air using their hearing rather than sight. In 1880, Pierre and Jacques Curie discovered the piezoelectric effect using natural quartz.
Later physicist Paul Langevin attempted to develop piezoelectric materials as senders and receivers of high‐frequency mechanical disturbances (ultrasound waves) through materials. His specific application was the use of ultrasound to detect submarines during World War I. Industrial uses of ultrasound began in 1928 with the suggestion of Soviet Physicist Dr.Sokolov that it could be used to detect hidden flaws in materials.
Medical uses of ultrasound through the 1930s were confined to therapeutic applications such as cancer treatments and physical therapy for various ailments. The potential of ultrasound as an imaging modality was realized as early as in late 1940ʹs when several groups of investigators around the world utilizing sonar and radar technology developed during World War II started exploring diagnostic capabilities of ultrasound. he publication by Dr. Dussik (Austria) in 1942 on their work on transmission ultrasound investigation of the brain was the first published medical ultrasonic application. Since then, with the development of the computer technology, ultrasound sensors technology, and the use of micro gas‐bubble based contrast agents enable the resolution and quality of the ultrasound imaging to improve substantially. In 1955 S.Satomura and Y.Nimura were credited for the earliest development of ultrasonic Doppler devices for monitoring tissue motion and blood flow. In 1985 color Doppler flow mapping system that combined Doppler flow imaging in color with Bmode imaging in gray scale was introduced by Aloka.
Ultrasonic imaging is one of the most important tools in diagnostic medicine and nondestructive testing today. The objective of this book is to provide graduate students, researchers, engineers and physicists involved in Ultrasound Imaging the latest information on state‐of‐the‐art work in the development and application of
Ultrasound Imaging.
This reference book is a collection of 17 chapters characterized in 3 parts: ultrasonic imaging, medical applications and clinical applications of ultrasonic.
This book provides an overview of ultrafast ultrasound imaging, 3D high‐quality ultrasonic imaging, correction of phase aberrations in medical ultrasound images, etc. Several interesting medical and clinical applications area are also discusses in the book like use of three dimensional ultrasound imaging in evaluation of Asherman’s syndrome, the role of 3D ultrasound in assessment of endometrial receptivity and follicular vascularity to predict the quality oocyte, ultrasound imaging in vascular diseases and the fetal palate, clinical application of ultrasound molecular imaging, Doppler abdominal ultrasound in small animals and so on.
