Performance of Ultrasound Transducer and Material Constants of Piezoelectric Ceramics
In recent years, real-time ultrasound diagnostic systems have proved to be very effective for a wide range of clinical usages. These real-time systems use piezoelectric transducers arrayed side by side and composed of small plank-shaped piezoelectric ceramics. These transducers must be efficient and give high resolution images in order to provide accurate diagnosis.
