Abstract

Ultrasound image reconstruction based on inverse problems has attracted attention to the ultrasonic imaging research community recently. Different from standard beamforming-based methods techniques, this new imaging method tries to solve a linear system g=Hf as a form of reconstructing the ultrasound image. In order to understand the behaviour of this imaging system, it is important to analyse the forward problem. In this paper, we analyse the effect of the noise in acquisition matrix using singular value decomposition. Also, the effect of regularization parameter in dealing with the noise is investigated in regularized. This analysis provides some interesting insights in the understanding of how the inverse reconstruction can be improve some aspects higher than beamforming.
