Improving ultrasound images using post processing

All ultrasound manufactures use post processing to create glossy images. The thesis will implement methods as a postprocessing step in the UltraSound ToolBox (USTB) in order to improve the visual apperance of images collected using our research scanner.

This thesis will do a literature study on different image post processing techniques for ultrasound imaging. Some of these techniques will be implmented in USTB. Examples of techniques to look into are

  • Spatial filtering between image "frames".
  • Speckle filtering
  • Clutter filtering


  • Excellent MATLAB programming skills (Object oriented MATLAB)

  • Image processing (INF2310,IN5520)

  • Signal processing (IN3190/4190, INF4480)

  • Git Version Control
