The matching layer

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

The matching layer One of the problems of ultrasound transducers is that the acoustic impedance of the crystal material is different from that of the patient. There is a relatively large acoustic impedance mismatch between the two. The piezo electric crystal -skin mismatch results in reduced penetration and sensitivity and increased reverberation artifact. To overcome Read more about The matching layer[…]
