In modern medicine, imaging is the most effective tool for diagnostics, treatment planning and therapy. Almost all modalities have went to directly digital acquisition techniques and processing of this image data have become an important option for health care in future. This book is written by a team of internationally recognized experts from all over the world. It provides a brief but complete overview on medical image processing and analysis highlighting recent advances that have been made in academics. Color figures are used extensively to illustrate the methods and help the reader to understand the complex topics.3.7.1 Resolution Although spatial and temporal resolution of 3D ultrasound systems have steadily improved over the last few years by the introduction of parallel beam forming and pre-beam ... Per second, a maximum of about 5, 000 pulse-echo measurements can thus be made; this limit is set by physics. These 5, 000 measurements need to fill up space-time as much as possible. ... However, parallelization not only comes at an economical cost but also at the cost of image quality.
