Title (EN) AN ULTRASOUND IMAGING SYSTEM PROBE AND SYSTEM, AND AN IMAGING METHOD
(FR) SONDE DE SYSTÈME ET SYSTÈME D'IMAGERIE PAR ULTRASONS, ET PROCÉDÉ D'IMAGERIE
Abstract:
(EN) An ultrasound imaging system probe comprises an imaging transducer head and a reception circuit for processing received reflected ultrasound signals. The reception circuit comprises an analogue to digital sigma delta converter which comprises a closed loop which comprises a tunable band pass filter. This enables the analog to digital converter to process only the desired frequency band. The ADC conversion bandwidth and ENOB are in this way programmable giving a more efficient probe design, and also enabling analog to digital conversion early in the signal processing chain.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une sonde de système d'imagerie par ultrasons comprenant une tête de transducteur d'imagerie et un circuit de réception pour traiter les signaux ultrasonores réfléchis reçus. Le circuit de réception comprend un convertisseur analogique-numérique sigma delta qui comprend une boucle fermée comportant un filtre passe-bande accordable. Ceci permet au convertisseur analogique-numérique de traiter uniquement la bande de fréquence souhaitée. La largeur de bande de conversion CAN et l'ENOB sont ainsi programmables, ce qui procure une conception de sonde plus efficace, et permet également une conversion analogique-numérique précoce dans la chaîne de traitement de signal.
