Ultrasound Quality Control

A brief guideline for B-mode ultrasound equipment

About the Book

This guideline has the objective to help health and technical professionals to do the basics quality control procedures in diagnostic B-mode ultrasound equipment. Here, are available the main tests such as axial and lateral resolution, dead zone, focal zone, maximum depth, vertical and horizontal distances and others. In summary, the guidelines described here could be found in our free software, which is optimized to all these basic quality control procedures for ultrasound B-mode. This document isn't at the final and absolute version, and anyone who wants to improve any point of this guideline are welcome (as well as the English transcription!).

About the Author

Antonio Senra Filho

Antonio Senra Filho has been intensively focused on intelligent systems and how to build machine learning approaches for real-case scenarios. With several known scientific research activities in journals and international conferences, the outcomes reported in the past years helped to achieve a better understanding of practical solutions that can be applied to commercial issues, e.g. document analysis, industry 4.0, smart cities, and so on. Therefore, there is a natural intersection between high-dimensional image analysis, image filtering, multidimensional feature extraction, artificial intelligence, and deep learning algorithms.
