The USTB initiative
Building a free MATLAB toolbox for processing ultrasonic signals

A task force is being gathered to develop a MATLAB toolbox for processing ultrasonic signals: The UltraSound ToolBox. Its aim is to facilitate the comparisson of imaging techniques and the dissemination of research results.

USTB will cover processing techniques for both tissue and flow visualization, as well as other image processing techniques. The USTB initiative will also put forward a file format for channel data and provide a number of datasest to serve as standard test cases .

The USTB team is seeking the involvement of other groups to reach the maximum consensus on formats and techniques. Do you want to collaborate? Just drop us an e-mail or write a comment in the forum.
