Working Group on Quantitative B-mode Ultrasound QC Test Development (US01)

AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information

ChargeThe primary task before this working group is to develop a set of quantitative tests for B-mode imaging systems. The main goal is to have a set of quality control tests that provide meaningful comparisions of ultrasound scanner performance between different scanners as well as demonstrating change in performance for individual scanners over time. Of particular interest will be tests that are able to detect scanner performance degradation as a result fo damaged or defective transducers. It is imperative that the tests be streamlined to require as little operator setup (to reduce operator variability) and to be as efficient as possible. This is because these tests are to be applied in a prospective study involving a large number of ultrasound systems and their associated transducers. The working group will seek the cooperation and support of vendors. These will include vendors who supply phantoms and test equipment as well as the major ultrasound instrument manufacturers.
