Pseudo B-Mode Ultrasound Image Simulator
Updated 22 Nov 2014
fcnPseudoBmodeUltrasoundSimulator generates a simulated Pseudo B-Mode Ultrasound image given the tissue acoustic echogenicity model for the structure to be imaged. The simulated image is of same image matrix size as the input echogenicity map. Linear transducer array architecture is assumed for image formation. Image formed with assumption of wave propagating vertically along the echogenicity map.
This implementation is based on method proposed in
