Improved contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging with multiplane wave imaging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging offers great opportunities for new ultrasound applications by improving the contrast between blood and tissue using microbubbles. However, the low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) due to the low mechanical index (MI) requirement can be an issue in practice. Multiplane wave (MW) imaging is a technique recently proposed to increase the SNR for compounding plane wave imaging. In this study, we propose to combine CEUS with MW imaging to improve SNR without elevating MI in plane-wave-based CEUS imaging.
