Oral examination 100/100 1 hours

Course content

The course will cover simulation methods for the following processes:

- linear wave propagation (spatial impulse response, K-space, 2D and 3D models, ...);
- beam and image formation (1D and 2D arrays, adaptive beamforming, ...);
- the transducer and its electric pathways (XTRans);
- moving scatterers and dynamic objects (doppler and tissue doppler imaging);
- non-linear wave propagation (quasi-linear approximation, KZK equation, finite differences methods, ...);
- aberration (AberSim)

Learning outcome

After completing the course, the student should:
1 Know the theory behind the most common simulation methods of ultrasonic wave propagation and imaging.
2 Be able to use the most common simulation tools and compare the results with lab experiments.
3 Know basic and advanced beamforming techniques.

Learning methods and activities

Two full weeks of lectures and laboratory practice plus an assignment.

Compulsory assignments

  • Laboratory tasks and approved report

Further on evaluation

The course will not be arranged with less than 5 participants.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
