Three dimensional display of ocular region using an array transducer
We report here a three dimensional (3D) display system for the ocular region, using an array transducer. The prototype system consists of real time diagnostic equipment, real time rotation process unit, and other units such as mechanical probe-scanner and joystic. Personal computer is interfaced to the system for further complex processes and experiments.
The 10 MHz linear array transducer is moved linearly by the scanner and the successive echo data are stored in the memory, and the extracted contour data are then transfered to the rotation process unit to display the total shape in a three dimensional fashion.
