Volume Acquisition and Visualization of High-Frequency Ultrasound Data
For nondestructive testing of modern ceramic components and other new materials, very often an inspection of the full sample volume is required. Conventional C-scan and B-scan images provide information on single slices or layers of the samples, but usually many of these scans are required to achieve a good comprehension of the full internal structure of the specimen. A time-saving alternative to C- and B-scanning is a full-volume measurement. In this work, we report on a volume acquisition system for high-frequency ultrasound inspections in the 10 MHz to 100 MHz regime. A powerful graphic workstation with modern visualization software is used to represent the ultrasound volume data.
