The purpose of this and the next chapter is to describe some of the basic concepts and systems for acoustic imaging. Consideration is given to modes of operation of imaging systems and to the variety of methodologies employed for implementing systems. Separate chapters of this book include more detailed accounts of some of the more important (or popular) techniques receiving attention today. Therefore, in this chapter topics will be presented in a rather introductory fashion in order to assemble the concepts for ultrasonics imaging system analysis and synthesis.
