Modeling of Reconfigurable Medical Ultrasonic Applications in BIP

Medical ultrasonic imaging applications require high quality of images produced in real-time often with limited resources available. Deadlock-freedom and confluency must be guaranteed to ensure the correctness of the applications, while feasibility and optimality properties are required to provide the best Quality of Service (QoS) within available resources. In this paper we introduce BIP (Behavior-Interaction-Priority) framework components as main building blocks to model such applications in a correct-by-construction manner. Based on those components we model a reconfigurable multi-mode processing pipeline for ultrasonic imaging that supports QoS management by topology reconfiguration. Finally, as a proof of concept, we present a simple quality controller as a well-triggered component, which when combined with the processing pipeline can manipulate the quality of image processing.
