Ultrasound is one of the most useful sources for visualizing the inside of materials and  has been used in many applications such as NDT (non destructive testing) and medical  ultrasound imaging. Specifi cally, medical ultrasound imaging has been actively applied  to abdominal, breast, heart, blood vessel, and fetus imaging. Nowadays, not only  visualization of the inside of the body but also the measurements of tissue motion,  blood fl ow and elasticity can be realized.
In this book, we present a dozen state of the art developments for ultrasound imaging,  for example, hardware implementation, transducer, beamforming, signal processing,  measurement of elasticity and diagnosis. The editors would like to thank all the chapter  authors, who focused on the publication of this book.
