Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 September 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 64
ICS Code (Electroacoustics): 17.140.50
ICS Code (Radiographic equipment): 11.040.50
scope:

This Technical Specification defines terms and specifies methods for quantifying the imaging performance of real-time, ultrasound B-mode scanners. The types of transducers used (see sections 7.6 and 10.7 of [1]) with these scanners include

a) phased array,

b) linear arrays,

c) convex arrays,

d) mechanical sector scanners,

e) 3-D probes operating in 2-D imaging mode (see Annex K),

f) 3-D probes operating in 3-D imaging mode for a limited number of sets of reconstructed 2-D images (see Annex K).

The test methodology is applicable for transducers operating in the 2 MHz to 15 MHz frequency range.
