Title (EN) MATCHING LAYERS FOR ULTRASOUND APPARATUS AND MANUFACTURING METHODS THEREFORE
(FR) COUCHES D'ADAPTATION POUR APPAREIL À ULTRASONS ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a matching layer (30) for facilitating the transmission of ultrasound energy between an ultrasound source and a target. The matching layer has an acoustic impedance that decreases across the matching layer, and comprises at least ten adjacent composites (32), each composite comprising a carrier material (40) and each composite having an acoustic impedance lower than that of the adjacent composite. Additionally, a plurality of the composites further comprise a dopant (42). Also provided is a method for forming a composite for use in such a matching layer.
(FR)La présente invention fournit une couche d'adaptation (30) pour faciliter la transmission d'énergie ultrasonore entre une source d'ultrasons et une cible. La couche d'adaptation a une impédance acoustique qui diminue à travers la couche d'adaptation, et comprend au moins dix composites adjacents (32), chaque composite comprenant un matériau support (40) et chaque composite ayant une impédance acoustique inférieure à celle du composite adjacent. En outre, une pluralité de ces composites comprennent un dopant (42). L'invention concerne également un procédé de formation d'un composite devant être utilisé dans une telle couche d'adaptation.
