Ultrasound Transducer Simulation Page
BioSono provides a cyberspace (www.biosono.com) where researchers, engineers, and students can find useful reference and educational materials, conduct acoustic simulation, post questions on design and development, and get answers. The online KLM based transducer acoustic stack simulation, which is currently free, can help you choose piezoelectric, matching and backing material, and a tuning electrical network. The output from the model includes electrical transmit impedance, acoustic receive impedance, and the impulse or pulse-echo response. The ultrasound beam profile simulation provides the calculated transmitted ultrasound pressure field under certain excitation for a given transducer aperture in a number of different geometrical configurations, including circular elements (flat and concave piston), rectangular elements, linear arrays, convex arrays, and 2D arrays. The simulation is based on Field II, which is a free program that utilizes the spatial impulse response method, and has been validated by many researchers for accuracy. In addition to the web based acoustic simulation, we also provide pulse-echo system, transducers, and customized design and develop services.

Ií»m a PhD student, I need your help for the simulation of B-mode image examples if you doní»t mind. I have been trying the examples of cyst phantom, the synthetic kidney and the synthetic fetus from Field II website. I followed the steps indicated in the website and in the userí»s guide, but I still have a problems. You will find in attached the obtained simulated images. I would like to know how can I correct these problems. My purpose is to evaluate the performance of my algorithm by comparing the simulated phantom images (output images) with their references (input images), and these images must have the same size and the same type. I would be grateful if you could help me. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
