Development of Bragg diffraction imaging for medical use

, : Development of Bragg diffraction imaging for medical use. Medical Physics 5(2): 111-114

Experience gained in developing a real-time acoustical imaging system using Bragg diffraction is presented. Particular emphasis has been placed on medical applications. We have studied the difficulties in assembling a system capable of producing high-quality images. Engineering data on the optical mounting and on the design of the transducer along with representative images are presented and discussed.
