Abstract (englisch):
3D Ultrasound Computer Tomography (USCT) emitting and receiving spherical wave fronts overcomes the limitations of 2D systems by offering a nearly isotropic 3D point spread function, a large depth of field, less loss of out-of-plane reflections, and fast 3D data acquisition.
3D devices for clinical practice require a more complex hard- and software due to the huge data rate, time-consuming image reconstruction, and large number of small transducers. The here reviewed KIT 3D USCT is a prototype for clinical studies, which realizes for the first time the full benefits of a 3D system.
