Abstract

We have developed a measuring system to visualize a complete cross-sectional image of the human extremity using ultrasonography. This system uses several ultrasound probes, and these probes measure fragmentary graphical images of one cross-sectional plane which are then transformed into a complete cross-sectional image. The developed system is superior to other imaging devices in many respects because it is portable, safe, and inexpensive. These advantages can be available in the field survey. This paper discusses the system components and the experiments to verify the proposed method.
