Tomographic Reconstruction of B-Scan Images
Each B-scan image is integrated over the aperture-axis for each point of the time-axis. These “pseudo-projections” are reconstructed as it is done in conventional computerized tomography.
Each B-scan image is convolved with a two dimensional filter function and then all filtered images are superimposed to give the final image.
