Description:For applications such as arteriosclerosis detection, it is interesting to estimate thickness of layers in the blood vessel walls. However, the limited spatial resolution from a standard B-mode image does not allow sufficient accuracy. Processing directly the raw RF signal should enable a better accuracy. This work is a combination of practical experiments with a portable ultrasound machine and implementation of signal processing algorithms.
