  • Description:

DukeUltrasound is an ultrasound dataset collected at Duke University with a Verasonics c52v probe. It contains delay-and-sum (DAS) beamformed data as well as data post-processed with Siemens Dynamic TCE for speckle reduction, contrast enhancement and improvement in conspicuity of anatomical structures. These data were collected with support from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering under Grant R01-EB026574 and National Institutes of Health under Grant 5T32GM007171-44. A usage example is available here.
