Prerequisites for participation
The course is open for Ph.D. students and researchers interested in acoustics
and medical ultrasound imaging. The participants need a basic knowledge
of linear acoustics as given in:
L. E. Kinsler , A. R. Frey ,A. B. Coppens and J. V. Sanders: Fundamentals
of Acoustics, Third edition, John Wiley & Sons,1982
Familiarity with signal and image processing like basic 1D and
2D Fourier transforms is required.
A working knowledge of Matlab
is needed in order to complete the exercises. No prior knowledge of the
ultrasound simulation program
Field II is needed, although it would highly be beneficial.
It is suggested that you bring your own
laptop with the two programs installed.
