Approach for Super Resolution in Ultrasound Imaging: An Overview

Puneet Pandey

Abstract

Ultrasound imaging is a wide spread technique used to view body soft tissues, like tendons, muscle or internal organs for possible problems. These images are achieved by capturing the returned acoustic waves using an ultrasonic transducer. Due to the propagation in imperfect environment, the resolution of these images has a poor quality. The requirements for better resolution currently represent a very important and open challenge. Accurate measurement and visualization of structure in living tissues is intrinsically limited by the imaging system features. Imaging beyond these limits in medical imaging is referred to as super-resolution. This paper intends to provide a brief overview of super-resolution imaging and to achieve a preliminary synthesis of the most important directions of study for the resolution improvement.
