CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. An ultrasound system comprising:

at least one memory storing computer program code; and

at least one processor;

wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

provide a tactile gain control comprising a near, middle, and far gain control, wherein the middle gain control is configured for two-dimensional range adjustment of depth and gain; adjust at least one of the near, middle, or far gain control; and

display an ultrasound image based on at least one of the adjusted near, middle, or far gain control.

2. The ultrasound system of claim 1, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to: manipulate a received signal at the ultrasound system based on the adjusted near, middle, and far gain control.

3. The ultrasound system of claim 2, wherein the received signal may be manipulated at a beginning and an end of the signal.

4. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

determine a gain curve based on the tactile gain control, wherein the ultrasound image is displayed based on the gain curve.

5. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

use interpolation to determine the gain curve, wherein the interpolation is based on at least one of a transducer type, an imaging mode, or an examination type.

6. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

rotate the middle gain control clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust a curvature of the gain curve.

7. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

activate the tactile gain control in response to a received user input, wherein the received user input is a sensed touching of the tactile gain control by a user.

8. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

display the tactile gain control on a user interface of the ultrasound system; and adjust at least one of the near, middle, or far gain control based on a received user input, wherein the received user input is sensed touching of the user interface.

9. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein each of the near, middle, or far gain controls can be individually adjusted.

10. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

display the gain curve joining the near, middle, and far gain control, wherein the displayed gain curve is different than an underlying gain curve used for manipulating a received signal at the ultrasound system.

11. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

receive a user input at the tactile gain control to perform a gain reset, wherein the gain reset returns the near, middle, and far gain control to a baseline setting.

12. The ultrasound system of claim 11, wherein the user input comprises double tapping a vertical gain reference line or a displayed gain curve on the tactile gain control.

13. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

adjust the gain using an overall gain control that is separate from the near, middle, or far gain control.

14. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

store a gain profile, wherein the gain profile comprises a position of the near, middle, and far gain control.

15. The ultrasound system of claim 14, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to: retrieve the stored gain profile based on a user selection; and

display the ultrasound image based on the stored gain profile.

16. The ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, wherein the computer program code is configured, when executed by the at least one processor, to cause the ultrasound system to:

change a curve slope of the gain curve based on a received user input; and adjust a reach based on the changed curve slope.

17. A computer implemented method in an ultrasound system comprising:

providing a tactile gain control comprising a near, middle, and far gain control, wherein the middle gain control is configured for two-dimensional range adjustment of depth and gain;

adjusting at least one of the near, middle, or far gain control; and

displaying an ultrasound image based on at least one of the adjusted near, middle, or far gain control.

18. The computer implemented method in an ultrasound system according to claim 17, further comprising:

manipulating a received signal at the ultrasound system based on the adjusted near, middle, and far gain control.

19. The computer implemented method in an ultrasound system according to any one of the above claims, further comprising:

determining a gain curve based on the tactile gain control, wherein the ultrasound image is displayed based on the gain curve.

20. The computer implemented method in an ultrasound system according to claim 19, further comprising:

rotating the middle gain control clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust a curvature of the gain curve.
