Abstract : This report documents the third year of a 4 year project to develop field prototype 3-D ultrasonic imaging system. During the reporting period, the major result was development of a third generation sequential B scan 3-D ultrasound telemedicine system prototype called MUSTPAC-2 (Medical Ultrasound, Three dimensional and Portable, with Advanced Communications). MUSTPAC-2 is a successor to the MUSTPAC-1, an award winning system that was successfully field tested in Germany and Bosnia in 1996. MUSTPAC-2 retains the operating principles of MUSTPAC-1 but is being designed to be manufacturable and FDA approved as well as having improved size, weight, usability, and robustness. As of this writing development of MUSTPAC-2 is approximately 50 percent complete. A working prototype is available.
