They are therefore popular for abdominal applications, including obstetrics. However, in order to maintain full contact, it is necessary to press the convex front face slightly into the patient. This makes the linear array more suitable than the curvilinear array for applications where superficial structures, such as arteries or veins, should not be deformed, or where the skin is sensitive. An answer to this problem is offered by trapezoidal (virtual curvilinear) arrays, discussed later. 7). Behind the lens is a matching layer, and behind this is a linear array of typically 128 regularly spaced, narrow, rectangular transducer elements, separated by narrow barriers Linear Curvilinear Fig.

Such machines can maintain good lateral resolution to much greater depths. Scan plane apodization Another beam-forming process, known as ‘apodization’, can also be employed. In transmission, this involves exciting the elements non-uniformly in order to control the intensity profile across the beam. For example, if the inner elements are excited more than the outer elements, side lobes can be reduced in amplitude and the focal zone can be extended. 14), a compromise is necessary and this is one judgement in which there is no common view among manufacturers.
