Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A conventional ultrasonic diagnostic system was modified to allow 10 scan lines from a sector scanner to be arbitrarily selected for measurement and analysis so that the velocity signals can be simultaneously measured at multiple points in the IVS and the LV wall for imaging of their spatial distribution. By applying this method to healthy subjects, spatial distributions of small vibrations, which were superimposed on the b-mode image was continuously obtained.
