Abstract

In this paper a frequency domain implementation of the Virtual Source Aperture (VSA) ultrasonic array imaging technique is presented. Multiple elements are fired with a phased array like delay law in order to generate a beamform as if it had originated from a virtual source located behind the aperture. Each element individually receives. The time domain Total Focusing Method (TFM) and the frequency domain phase migration methods are used to image a series of reflectors and the performance of the two imaging algorithms are measured by mapping the response of a generic reflector over a range of positions and comparing the indication intensity of the two algorithms.
