Understanding ultrasound imaging using Raspberry Pi. Shared by kelul24 on Hackaday.io:

This tool is based on the previous work done (like murgen, but was not simple enough), to get a ultrasound imaging dev kit. In short, this is a modularized version of Murgen, all equipped for imaging, based on two ad-hoc ultrasound boards, a Raspberry, a custom ADC, and a motherboard.

This HSDK has for objective to:

– consolidate existing hardware research;

– simplify and lower the cost of the kit;

– permits benchmarking of ultrasound systems;

– introduce a simple API to control hardware;

– have a server which provides both raw ultrasound and data standard DICOM files;

– have a kit that can be used for pedagogical and academic purposes

– not to mention people who want to understand ultrasound!

Anyhow, the goal here is simple. I need a stand-alone “exploring tool” to explore ultrasound systems. I have built several versions with Murgen, and have made the proof that it’s possible to have a small ultrasound machine in your garage. However, I found more pleasure in building the tools and in the process of digging into the different components.. and that’s what I want to explore in this project.

Hardware is basically already built: previous lessons from Murgen bring the analog front end, a hack I have can be used to emulate a probe: what remains is to remove overkills on the circuits, and SIMPLIFY everything, making it more robust and more user friendly.

The second step will be to have a good driver for the Raspberry Pi (which I believe is enough for my needs), to control the hardware, and develop a good enough server API.
