CUDA Accelerated Real Time Signal Processing in High Performance Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging
See how real time CUDA-based signal processing has been applied to high data rate signal processing pipeline stages of the ACUSON SC2000™ diagnostic medical ultrasound imaging system. In addition to replacing FPGA and CPU based processing functions we have been able to rapidly extend the capabilities of this system to achieve improved speckle reduction, image information content and lesion conspicuity. These processing stages co-exist seamlessly with real time OpenGL based 2D and 3D reconstruction in a Windows based system. The continuing advancement of GPU computing performance will enable further exciting developments in medical imaging.
Ismayil Guracar has been working in the ultrasound imaging field for over 26 years. He is currently a Senior Key Expert with the Innovations Applications Group at Siemens Healthcare, Ultrasound Business Unit in Mountain View, California. His interests include ultrasound image formation and high performance real time signal processing, especially using GPUs. He holds 63 US patents and has pioneered new ultrasound technologies in the areas of parametric and molecular imaging and contributed to the development of many successful diagnostic medical imaging products.
