V Flow : A Novel Visualization of Blood Flow

2016 21 Jan

Introduction Ultrasound color flow mapping (CFM) has been extensively used in clinical diagnosis. Velocity of blood flow is calculated through a leg-one auto-correlation [1] method using the beamformed and filtered receiving signals. The magnitude of velocity relative to the direction of ultrasound beam propagation can be obtained and thus is... Read more

Automatic Detect Fetal Median Sagittal Plane Using Smart MSP

2016 20 Jan

1.1 Background Ultrasound is a standard way to evaluate fetal anatomies. For the examination of fetal brain, one of the most important anatomical views is median sagittal plane (MSP).This plane can provide unique information of intracranial structures such as corpus callosum (CC) and cerebellar vermis (CV). Several studies [1~6] have proved that... Read more
