Unformatted text preview: in the carrier signal which is then further processed through series of steps to give a pulsed Doppler echocardiogram pattern. To convert the signals into an image we first must deconvolute our signal with the impulse response. However the signal we obtain from this is our target along with some random noise. There are several methods and on going research on improving this. The traditional method is by use of Fourier transforms. Newer methods include auto regression which currently results in better resolution then the Fourier way. Images are shown in B-mode, which is the energy of the signal shown in grayscale in a dot or pixel. A 1D pulse is sent out over a 90 degree angle from a single point, since the data is obtained in polar coordinates, it is converted to rectangular coordinates. Interpolation is used to fill in the gaps between scan lines. From there we are able to get a 2D image....
