D-L Donald Liu - Issaquah WA
John C. Lazenby - Fall City WA
Zoran Banjanin - Newcastle WA
Bruce A. McDermott - Bellevue WA
Assignee:
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. - Iselin NJ
International Classification:
A61B 800
US Classification:
600443, 73625
Abstract:
A system and method for reducing parallel beamforming artifacts. An interpolation of amplitude data is performed to correct for the blocky appearance of images formed with parallel receive beams. In addition, the transmit beam is modified to approximate a rectangular beam.

Ultrasound Transmission Method And System For Simulating A Transmit Apodization

US Patent:
6599245, Jul 29, 2003
Filed:
Jun 27, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/604568
Inventors:
Qinglin Ma - Bothell WA
John C. Lazenby - Fall City WA
Lin Xin Yao - Bellevue WA
Bruce A. McDermott - Bellevue WA
David A. Petersen - Fall City WA
Assignee:
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. - Iselin NJ
International Classification:
A61B 800
US Classification:
600437, 600454
Abstract:
A system for controlling the point spread function of an ultrasound signal transmitted into a patient. In accordance with one embodiment of the invention, only a selected number of the transducer elements transmit a transmit pulse. The elements which do not transmit the pulse are selected in accordance with an apodization probability density function. In accordance with another aspect of the present invention, each transducer element transmits a variable portion of a transmit pulse in order to control the acoustic power of the signal transmitted from each element.

Volume Rendering Quality Adaptations For Ultrasound Imaging

US Patent:
7601121, Oct 13, 2009
Filed:
Jul 12, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/889710
Inventors:
Nikolaos Pagoulatos - Athens,
Bruce A. McDermott - Bellevue WA,
Thomas B. Lindh - Woodinville WA,
Roderick C. Gauss - Bellevue WA,
Assignee:
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. - Malvern PA
International Classification:
A61B 8/00
US Classification:
600443, 382128
Abstract:
Rendering quality parameter values are automatically set or adjusted as a function of acquisition ultrasound parameter values. The rendering quality is automatically selected based on the acquisition quality, such as providing for a higher quality or quality rendering for slower acquisitions. More than two rendering states are provided for a respective, more than two different quality settings.

Adaptive Volume Rendering For Ultrasound Color Flow Diagnostic Imaging

US Patent:
8425422, Apr 23, 2013
Filed:
Apr 30, 2009
Appl. No.:
12/433649
Inventors:
Seshadri Srinivasan - Santa Clara CA,
Patric Ljung - Princeton NJ,
Bruce A. McDermott - Bellevue WA,
Merv Mencias Smith-Casem - Renton WA,
Assignee:
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. - Malvern PA
International Classification:
A61B 5/00
US Classification:
600443, 600437, 600440, 600441, 600453, 600454, 600407, 382128, 382134
Abstract:
Adaptive volume rendering is provided for medical diagnostic ultrasound. The opacity of B-mode data is set relative to the opacity of Doppler data. The opacities for the different types of data are set as a function of ray depth. For example, the opacity of B-mode data near a tissue border is set to be more opaque than for tissue away from the border, and the opacity for flow data near a flow border is set to be less opaque than for flow away from the border. An image is rendered using a rendering parameter set as a function of ray depth, B-mode information and Doppler information. Other processes for enhancing and/or using rendering may be used.

Animation For Conveying Spatial Relationships In Three-Dimensional Medical Imaging

US Patent:
8494250, Jul 23, 2013
Filed:
Jan 9, 2009
Appl. No.:
12/351638
Inventors:
Bruce A. McDermott - Bellevue WA,
Mervin Mencias Smith-Casem - Renton WA,
Patric Ljung - Princeton NJ,
Stefan Wiesner - Princeton NJ,
Assignee:
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. - Malvern PA
International Classification:
G06K 9/00
G06K 9/32
G06T 15/00
G06T 17/00
G06T 15/10
US Classification:
382154, 382293, 382295, 382296, 345419, 345420, 345427
Abstract:
Spatial relationships are conveyed in three-dimensional ultrasound imaging. To transition a volume rendering from one view to another view, the transition is animated, showing rotation. For example, the user examines one diagnostic view, but decides to examine another diagnostic view. Upon selection of the other diagnostic view, the volume rendered image appears to rotate. The rotation from one view to another shows the spatial relationship between the views. The user may then examine the static volume rendering at the desired view with an appreciation of the relationship with the previously examined static view.

Three-Dimensional Reconstruction For Irregular Ultrasound Sampling Grids

US Patent:
2012023, Sep 20, 2012
Filed:
Mar 18, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/051706
Inventors:
Mervin Smith-Casem - Renton WA,
Patric Ljung - Princeton NJ,
Guillaume Stordeur - Plainsboro NJ,
Jian-Hua Mo - Palo Alto CA,
Bruce McDermott - Bellevue WA,
Assignee:
SIEMENS CORPORATION - Iselin NJ
SIEMENS MEDICAL SOLUTIONS USA, INC. - Malvern PA
International Classification:
G06T 17/00
US Classification:
345424
Abstract:
An irregular ultrasound sampling grid is reconstructed to a three-dimensional grid for imaging. Volume data acquired with a helix transducer includes a fractional offset of data spaced along one dimension, resulting in the irregular ultrasound sampling grid. To determine a voxel value for a grid point on a uniform grid, two adjacent planes are identified. The sample locations in the two planes are not aligned, being on the irregular ultrasound sampling grid. Hardware acceleration devices, such as a graphics processing unit, perform bilinear interpolation in each of the planes. The data of each plane is interpolated to the proper global azimuth-range coordinate corresponding with the grid point. The bilinearly interpolated values from each plane are then linearly interpolated to the grid point.
