Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR GENERATING AN IMAGE FROM HIGH AND LOW FREQUENCY SOUND WAVES
Abstract:
A system and method are disclosed for generating an image from high and low frequency sound waves. A system that incorporates teachings of the present disclosure may include, for example, a multimode imager (100) having an ultrasound (US) probe (102), a low frequency sound (LFS) probe (104), and a controller (110) that manages operations of the US and LFS probes. The controller can be programmed to combine (608) images derived from sound data collected by the US and LFS probes. Additional embodiments are disclosed.
