Demo: Efficient Delay and Apodization for on-FPGA 3D Ultrasound

In medical diagnosis, ultrasound (US) imaging is one of the most common, safe, and powerful techniques. Volumetric (3D) US is potentially very attractive, compared to 2D US, because it might enable telesonography - decoupling the local image acquisition, by an untrained person, and the diagnosis, by the trained sonographer, who can be remote. Unfortunately, current 3D systems are hospital-oriented, bulky and expensive, and they cannot be available in emergency operations or rural areas. This motivates us to develop a portable US platform with cheap, battery-operated, more efficient electronics.
