Abstract

An ultrasound imaging system includes a probe and a console. The probe includes a row-column addressed transducer array, first beamformer configured to beamform echo signals received by the row-column addressed transducer array and produce a set of image planes for each emission with a single focus in both transmit and receive, and a first communication interface. The console includes a second complementary communication interface and a second beamformer configured to beamform the focused set of image planes and produce a three-dimensional volume of ultrasound data.
