Optimization of Contrast-to-Tissue Ratio by Adaptation of Transmitted Ternary Signal in Ultrasound Pulse Inversion Imaging

Figure 2

Simulation of automatic optimization of the contrast-to-tissue ratio (CTR) by a transmitted ternary signal. The optimization was compared to two ternary signals, where the transmit frequency was at the optimal frequency and at two-thirds of the central frequency of the transducer.
