Griffith and Henry50 at the National Institutes of Health developed a mechanical device that rocked the transducer back and forth. The device was handheld; however, the ability to manipulate the transducer was very limited.
Reggie Eggleton, who originally worked at the University of Illinois with Robert, Frank, and Elizabeth Frye, moved to Indiana and developed a mechanical two-dimensional scanner Fig. Interestingly enough, his first prototype was actually a modified sunbeam electric toothbrush. This early mechanical scanner was the first commercially successful real-time twodimensional device.

Lancee CT, ed. The Hague, Netherlands: Martinus Nijhoff, , with permission. Color flow Doppler or two-dimensional Doppler ultrasound dates back to the late s. A group headed by Brandestini working at the University of Washington in Seattle showed how one could use an M-mode recording of a multigated Doppler signal Fig. This principle was later more fully developed by Japanese workers including Kasai et al.
They were now able to provide an excellent real-time two-dimensional display of color flow. Omoto, a Japanese cardiovascular surgeon, and coworkers55 helped popularize the clinical value of twodimensional color Doppler imaging. The origin of transesophageal echocardiography also dates back to the s.
Lee Frazin, a cardiologist in Chicago, placed an M-mode transducer at the tip of a transesophageal probe and demonstrated how one could obtain an M-mode recording of the heart via the esophagus.
However, both Japanese and European investigators began working with this technology. Initially, the devices were mechanical and later became electronic. Hisanaga and coworkers57 were among the Japanese engineers, and Jacques Souquet was a European engineer who made a major contribution to transesophageal electronic probes in The versatility of ultrasound is exemplified by the fact that one can devise ultrasonic imaging techniques, using very large or very small transducers.
An exquisite ultrasonic imaging device used to examine the entire body was developed by an Australian engineer, George Kossoff. He developed an instrument called an Octoson. It consisted of eight very large transducers that rotated around the body. The instrument produced images that were of excellent resolution and clarity. The other extreme is the ability to put a tiny transducer on the tip of a catheter that can be inserted in the cardiovascular system. Reggie Eggleton devised a catheter-based imaging system in the s as did Ciezynski in Europe and Omoto in Japan.
In the early s, Nicholas Bom and colleagues60 described a real-time intracardiac scanner using a circular array of 32 elements at the tip of a catheter.
This technology developed further to the point that catheter-tipped transducers could be placed on an intracoronary device. Such instruments have been used clinically and P. Possibly, the clinician who used intracoronary ultrasound to its greatest extent is Steven Nissen, who currently is at the Cleveland Clinic. He has used this technique to revolutionize our understanding of coronary atherosclerosis. Numerous efforts at using compound two-dimensional scans to produce three-dimensional imaging have been demonstrated.
Among the early leaders in three dimensional echocardiography was Olaf vonRamm and his group. However, now several such instruments are available and increasing in popularity. Recording Echocardiograms Along with developing instruments to create images and physiologic information of the heart, there has been a simultaneous history of developing techniques for recording this information.
From the very beginning, Helmut. Hertz was primarily interested in recording rather than creating ultrasonic images. In so doing, he developed ink-jet technology, which proved to be extremely important. When I first began using ultrasound in the early s, a Polaroid camera was the principal recording technique for A-mode and M-mode echocardiograms Figs. This approach was extremely limited and had many problems.
Some investigators, such as Gramiak, used mm film to record their M-mode echocardiograms. Much of my early efforts were to get commercial companies to provide strip chart recorders for our M-mode echocardiograms. The variety of strip chart recorders that became available has its own history. With the advent of two-dimensional echocardiography, we had to work out a scheme for recording these realtime two-dimensional images.
At our own institution, we first used super 8 movie film as our recording medium. We would direct a movie camera at the oscilloscope and generate movies. The use of the movie film was short-lived and we soon went to videotape.
Initially, we used reel-to-reel tape recorders. Then a variety of recorders with cassettes became available. A popular tape recorder in the early years was produced by Sanyo. Unfortunately, analyzing a study frame by frame was very tedious. One had to turn a small buttonlike control and could not view images backward. Finally, Panasonic developed a tape recorder that permitted easy forward and backward viewing as well as frame-by-frame analysis.
Because of the dominance of two-dimensional echocardiography in the clinical use of echocardiography, videotape became the standard means of recording echocardiogram for decades.
Unfortunately, videotape also has major limitations. Looking at serial studies with videotape is problematic. The accessibility of videotape is inconvenient. One cannot make measurements from videotaped images. Copies of videotaped images are always degraded. Digital recording of echocardiograms began in the early s. Interest in using digital techniques has been accelerating ever since.
There are numerous advantages to using a digital recording. Sideby-side comparisons are facilitated. One can make measurements easily, and the images are more accessible. Initially, the digital images were generated by grabbing the video signal either from the instrument or by digitizing the videotape. In recent years, a direct digital output from ultrasonic instruments has become available.
Cardiac Sonographers Early in my experience with cardiac ultrasound, it became apparent that the technique would become fairly popular. Performing the echocardiograms myself became a fairly timeconsuming activity. Being a clinical cardiologist with responsibilities for patient care, including cardiac catheterization, I clearly felt that I could not continue to be the principal person to obtain echocardiograms.
We also did not have sufficient physicians interested in the technique to provide a complement of physicians to do the echocardiograms throughout the day. As a result, I believed that it would be possible to train a nonphysician to do an echocardiogram. There was considerable skepticism among the few physicians active in the field of ultrasound at the time as to whether this approach was feasible.
The first nonphysician hired to perform echocardiograms was Charles Haine. Our second cardiac sonographer was Sonia Chang. Her skills in obtaining an M-mode echocardiogram were so outstanding that with my encouragement she eventually published a book on the M-mode echocardiographic examination. It was a major publication from which many of the early users of M-mode echocardiography learned their technical skills.
Most of the visitors who came to Indiana in the early days learned how to do echocardiograms from Sonia. Sonia left Indiana just after the introduction of two-dimensional echocardiography.
She went to Emory University in Atlanta to work with Dr. Willis Hurst, who was the chairman of cardiology at the time. Virtually, every echocardiographic laboratory in the United States has a sonographer who excels in the ability to obtain an echocardiogram.
Cardiac sonographers have been a major factor in making echocardiography a cost-effective examination. Using a nonphysician to create echocardiograms is not a worldwide concept. In most countries, echocardiograms are still obtained by physicians.
One exception is England, where there is a somewhat different situation. Their cardiac sonographers are probably more highly trained individuals than our sonographers. They come closer to being a physician's assistant and have a greater formal education in cardiac physiology and anatomy. They also perform interpretations with a higher degree of frequency than do sonographers in the United States.
Early Polaroid recordings of M-mode echocardiogram. Mitral stenosis, B: Echocardiographic Education and Organizations The first meeting dedicated solely to cardiac ultrasound was in Indianapolis in January Fig. Among the faculty were Drs. Edler, Joyner, Reid, and Strandness Fig.
There were approximately 50 people who attended that course, one of whom was Raymond Gramiak. At that meeting, Dr. Edler showed the movie that. Another member of the faculty was Richard Popp, who was a cardiology fellow at Indiana at the time. Bernard Ostrum, who was a radiologist at Albert Einstein Medical Center, presented data on abdominal aortas. Chuck Haine was an integral part of the program and demonstrated some of our ultrasonic techniques at Indiana.
The American Society of Echocardiography was also created in Indianapolis in The decision to create the society was made at a postgraduate meeting in Indianapolis. There are now several worldwide echocardiography organizations, publications, and meetings. Echocardiography has come a long way since its beginnings in the mids.
Although there are many new, highly P. This diagnostic tool is amazingly versatile. It is still very cost-effective compared with competing technologies and has many new possibilities as to how this examination can be improved and provide more and better information. Thus, the future of echocardiography should be as productive and exciting as have been the previous five decades.

Ultrasound Med Biol ;4: Chapter 2 Physics and Instrumentation Sound is a mechanical vibration transmitted through an elastic medium.
When it propagates through air at the appropriate frequency, sound may produce the sensation of hearing. Ultrasound includes that portion of the sound spectrum having a frequency greater than 20, cycles per second 20 KHz , which is considerably above the audible range of human hearing. The use of ultrasound to study the structure and function of the heart and great vessels defines the field of echocardiography.
The production of ultrasound for diagnostic purposes involves complex physical principles and sophisticated instrumentation. As technology has evolved, a thorough understanding of these principles mandates an extensive background in physics and engineering. Fortunately, the use of echocardiography for clinical purposes does not require a complete mastery of the physics and instrumentation involved in the creation of the ultrasound image.
However, a basic understanding of these facts is necessary to take full advantage of the technique and to appreciate the strengths and limitations of the technology.
This book is intended principally as a clinical guide to the broad field of echocardiography, to be used by clinicians, students, and sonographers concerned more about the practical application of the technology than the underlying physics.
For this reason, an extensive description of the physics and engineering of ultrasound is beyond the scope of this book. Instead, this chapter focuses on those aspects of physics and instrumentation that are relevant to the understanding of ultrasound and its practical application to patient care. In addition, many of the newer technical advances in ultrasound instrumentation are presented briefly, primarily to provide the reader a sense of the changing and ever-improving nature of echocardiography.
Physical Principles Ultrasound in contrast to lower, i. First, ultrasound can be directed as a beam and focused. Second, as ultrasound passes through a medium, it obeys the laws of reflection and refraction. Finally, targets of relatively small size reflect ultrasound and can, therefore, be detected and characterized. A major disadvantage of ultrasound is that it is poorly transmitted through a gaseous medium and attenuation occurs rapidly, especially at higher frequencies.
As a wave of ultrasound propagates through a medium, the particles of the medium vibrate parallel to the line of propagation, producing longitudinal waves.
Thus, a sound wave is characterized by areas of more densely packed particles within the medium an area of compression alternating with regions of less densely packed particles an area of rarefaction. The amount of reflection, refraction, and attenuation depends on the acoustic properties of the various media through which an ultrasound beam passes.
Tissues composed of solid material interfaced with gas such as the lung will reflect most of the ultrasound energy, resulting in poor penetration. Very dense media also reflect a high percentage of the ultrasound energy.
Soft tissues and blood allow relatively more ultrasound energy to be propagated, thereby increasing penetration and improving diagnostic utility.
Bone also reflects most ultrasound energy, not because it is dense but because it contains so many interfaces. The ultrasound wave is often graphically depicted as a sine wave in which the peaks and troughs represent the areas of compression and rarefaction, respectively Fig.
Small pressure changes occur within the medium, corresponding to these areas, and result in tiny oscillations of particles, although no actual particle motion occurs.
Depicting ultrasound in the form of a sine wave has some limitations but allows the demonstration of several fundamental principles. The sum of one compression and one rarefaction represents one cycle, and the. Over the range of diagnostic ultrasound, wavelength varies from approximately 0.
The frequency of the sound wave is the number of wavelengths per unit of time.
Thus, wavelength and frequency are inversely related and their product represents the velocity of the sound wave:. Velocity through a given medium depends on the density and elastic properties or stiffness of that medium.
Velocity is directly related to stiffness and inversely related to density. Ultrasound travels faster through a stiff medium, such as bone. Velocity also varies with temperature, but because body temperature is maintained within a relatively narrow range, this is of little significance in medical imaging.
Table 2. Thus, to find the wavelength of a 3. This schematic illustrates how sound can be depicted as a sine wave in which peaks and troughs correspond to areas of compression and rarefaction, respectively. As sound energy propagates through tissue, the wave has a fixed wavelength that is determined by the frequency and amplitude that is a measure of the magnitude of pressure changes.
See text for further details. The product of the density of the medium and the velocity of sound; differences in acoustic impedance between two media determine the ratio of transmitted versus reflected sound at the interface.
The magnitude of the pressure changes along the wave; also, the strength of the wave in decibels. A logarithmic measure of the intensity of sound, expressed as a ratio to a reference value dB. The fraction of time that the transducer is emitting ultrasound, a unitless number between 0 and 1.
The concentration or distribution of power within an area, often the crosssectional area of the ultrasound beam, analogous to loudness. The proximal cylindrical-shaped portion of the ultrasound beam before divergence begins to occur.
The phenomenon of changing shape in response to an applied electric current, resulting in vibration and the production of sound waves; the ability to produce an electric impulse in response to a mechanical deformation; thus, the interconversion of electrical and sound energy. The rate of transfer over time of the acoustic energy from the propagating wave to the medium, measured in Watts.
A burst or packet of emitted ultrasound of finite duration, containing a fixed number of cycles traveling together. The physical length or distance that a pulse occupies in space, usually expressed in millimeters mm.
The rate at which pulses are emitted from the transducer, i. The smallest distance between two points that allows the points to be distinguished as separate. The length of a single cycle of the ultrasound wave; a measure of distance, not time.
If an ultrasound wave encounters an area of higher elasticity or stiffness, for example, velocity will increase. Because frequency does not change, wavelength will also increase. As is discussed later, wavelength is a determinant of resolution: Another fundamental property of sound is amplitude, which is a measure of the strength of the sound wave Fig. It is defined as the difference between the peak pressure within the medium and the average value, depicted as the height of the sine wave above and below the baseline.
Amplitude is measured in decibels, a logarithmic unit that relates acoustic pressure to some reference value. The primary advantage of using a logarithmic scale to display amplitude is that a very wide range of values can be accommodated and weak signals can be displayed along side much stronger signals.
Of practical use, an increase of 6 dB is equal to a doubling of signal amplitude, and 60 dB represents a 1,fold change in amplitude or loudness. A parameter closely related to amplitude is power, which is defined as the rate of energy transfer to the medium, measured in watts. This is analogous to loudness. Intensity diminishes rapidly with propagation distance and has important implications with respect to the biologic effects of ultrasound, which are discussed later.
Interaction Between Ultrasound and Tissue These basic characteristics of ultrasound have practical implications for the interaction between ultrasound and tissue. For example, the higher the frequency of the ultrasound wave and the shorter the wavelength ,. Because precise identification of small structures is a goal of imaging, the use of high frequencies would seem desirable.
However, higher frequency ultrasound has less penetration compared with lower frequency ultrasound. The loss of ultrasound as it propagates through a medium is referred to as attenuation. This is a measure of the rate at which P. Attenuation has three components: Attenuation always increases with depth and is also affected by the frequency of the transmitted beam and the type of tissue through which the ultrasound passes.
The higher the frequency, the more rapidly it will attenuate. Representative half-power distances are listed in Table 2. As a rule of thumb, the attenuation of ultrasound in tissue is between 0.
This approximation describes the expected loss of energy in decibels that would occur over the round-trip distance that a beam would travel after being emitted by a given transducer. For example, if a 3-MHz transducer is used to image an object at a depth of 12 cm cm round trip , the returning signal could be attenuated as much as 72 dB or nearly 4,fold. As expected, attenuation is greater in soft tissue compared with blood and is even greater in muscle, lung, and bone.
The velocity and direction of the ultrasound beam as it passes through a medium are a function of the acoustic impedance of that medium. Acoustic impedance Z, measured in rayls is simply the product of velocity in meters per second and physical density in kilograms per cubic meter.
Within a homogeneous structure, the density and stiffness of the medium primarily determine the behavior of a transmitted ultrasound beam. In such a structure, sound would travel in a straight line at a constant velocity, depending on the density and stiffness. Variations in impedance create an acoustic mismatch between regions. The greater the acoustic mismatch, the more the energy reflected rather than transmitted.
Within the body, the tissues through which an ultrasound beam passes have different acoustic impedances. Enjoy, folks!
