Course content

Mathematical model for pulse-echo imaging systems based on signals in space and time. Effects from limited bandwidth and sampling on resolution in space and time. Representation of dynamic images by means of multi dimensional Fourier analysis. Practical reconstruction algorithms for 2D and 3D imaging. Use of grayscale/color graphics to achieve dynamic image information. Estimation of power spectrum and auto correlation applied on ultrasound Doppler signals. Application mainly within ultrasound-imaging, but also other medical imaging techniques will be treated.
