Abstract

Computer simulation has been used widely in medical ultrasonic transducer designs. One could now construct and test a transducer entirely on a virtual basis. Such a virtual design and testing procedure not only can save us time and money, but also provide better understanding on design failures and allow us to modify designs more efficiently and economically. This paper is intended to give a brief review on virtual transducer design procedure using a few examples and also list the necessary precautions while using such advanced design tools.
