There have been dramatic achievements in the ad-vancement of medical ultrasound since its first appli-cation as a diagnostic tool. The advent of real-time imaging, Doppler ultrasound, miniaturization, and a host of specialized adaptations and image quality im-provements have made diagnostic ultrasound a valu-able and reliable tool in the medical theater with ma-jor applications in obstetrics/gynecology, cardiology, abdominal imaging, and vascular imaging. Despite this impressive advancement, however, the data ac-quisition method upon which all conventional ultra-sound systems are based has remained relatively static, with inherent limitations on its ability to de-liver increasing image quality as well as advanced clinical benefits. This paper will explore the current state of the art in ultrasound imaging and discuss a new core technology that has the potential to far ex-ceed the limitations imposed by conventional tech-nology.
