Abstract

3D-ultrasound can become a new, fast, non-radiative, noninvasive, and inexpensive tomographic medical imaging technique with unique advantages for the localization of vessels and tumors in soft tissue (spleen, kidneys, liver, breast etc.). In general, unlike the usual 2Dultrasound, in the 3D-case a complete volume is covered with a whole series of cuts, which would enable a 3D reconstruction and visualization. In the last two decades, many researchers have attempted to produce systems that would allow the construction and visualization of threedimensional (3-D) images from ultrasound data. There is a general agreement that this development represents a positive step forward in medical imaging, and clinical applications have been suggested in many different areas. However, it is clear that 3-D ultrasound has not yet gained widespread clinical acceptance, and that there are still important problems to solve before it becomes a common tool.
