A similar arrangement is present in a convex array, but the elements are arranged in a curve, giving this type of the transducer a wider view (larger footprint) in the far field. Elements in curved-array probe can be activated individually or in small groups. 8. Vascular image (right common femoral vein) produced by linear sequential array transducer. Notice the image is square and is of the same size as a vessel. The solid-looking structure 1 in the middle of the vessel is a thrombus. phased arrays.

Pulse repetition frequency (PRF) is the number of pulses emitted in one second. PRP (sec) = 1/PRF (Hz), PRF (Hz) = 1/PRP (sec). The deeper the image, the longer the PRP, the lower the PRF. related in the following ways: PRP (sec) = 1/PRF (Hz) PRF (Hz) = 1/PRP (sec) Note that though it is measured in the same units, PRF has no relationship to the frequency of the ultrasound wave produced during pulse generation that is measured in MHz. 7). Shorter pulses, just as shorter wavelengths of the pulse wave, reflect off the smaller objects.

Incoming ultrasound echoes are converted into electrical impulses by the transducer and sent into the receiver/processor. The processor deciphers electrical information and an image is created. In modern systems, the image is displayed and stored in a digital format. Outgoing information is represented by solid arrows: red for electrical, green for ultrasound signals. Incoming information is represented by broken arrows. 6. Storage devices, also known as an archive, keep information more or less permanently for further review and to meet legal requirements.
