1.5.1 ALARA principle


Diagnosis through ultrasound equipment can be done with the principle, ‘As Low
As Reasonably Achievable.’ Many people have discussed and defined about
what is 'reasonable'. However, there are no rules like perfect formula which is
suitable for all environments and can control situations. But when diagnosing, by
being minimally exposed to ultrasound waves, the damage caused by ultrasound
waves can be reduced. Because the damage caused by ultrasound waves has
not been identified yet, it is very important to adjust the amount of ultrasound
waves penetrated to patients. Therefore, it is important to obtain accurate images
by ultrasound diagnosis but it is also important to reduce the exposure time of
patients. For harmony between exposure time of patients and obtaining accurate
images, the ultrasound system provides the function to adjust test results in
optimal status while diagnosing. The ability to always understand and fulfill ALARA
principle is very important. The development of ultrasound diagnosis is possible
because ultrasound device as well as technology providing information of high
quality is being developed. This major information is made based on several
output data of ultrasound waves and plays an important role in implementing the
principle of ALARA. There are many variables affecting output data, basic data of
provided information. They are mass, size, the position of bones related to focus,
weakness of the body and time to exposed ultrasound waves etc. Among them,
exposure time is the variable requiring the most attention. Because unlike other
variables, exposure time is the variable determined by users of ultrasound
equipment.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-20


Service Manual

1.5.1.1 Applying ALARA


Imaging mode of the system used varies depends on the information you
need. While 2Dmode and M mode images provide anatomical information,
Doppler, power and color mode images provide blood flow information. While
scanned mode such as 2D mode, power or color distributes ultrasound energy by
dispersing ultrasound energy across area, unscanned mode such as M mode or
Doppler focuses ultrasound energy. By understanding the characteristics of
imaging mode being used, ultrasound users form ajudgment based on information
by applying ALARA principle. And due to added probe frequency, system setting
value, scanning technology and operator experience, users will be able to comply
with ALARA principle. The amount of Acoustic output is determined by the system
operator in the final analysis. This decision should be based on factors such as
type of patient, kind of experiment, patient history, easy accessibility
on useful diagnostic information, potential heat applied to the patient's local part
from probe surface temperature etc. For correct diagnostic results, patient
exposure is limited to the lowest index for required time and the system is
used. Although high index value does not mean the actual occurrence of Bio
effect, if index value is high, this is the problem that should be handled carefully. It
means that every effort should be put to reduce the negative impact that high
index value may cause. Limiting exposure time may be one kind of effective
method. There are several system controls that can be used by users to adjust
image quality and limit Acoustic intensity. These controls are related to skills
needed for operator to implement ALARA and are classified into 3 categories,
direct, indirect, receiver control.

1.5.1.2 Direct Controls


Selection of diagnostic subjects and Output intensity control affect Acoustic
intensity directly. Depending on the selection, acceptable range of Intensity or
Output varies. Selecting the accurate Acoustic intensity range for diagnostic
subjects is one of priorities that should be considered in any experiment. For
example, peripheral vascular intensity level is not recommended
in fetal experiments. Some systems automatically select the appropriate range of
specific diagnostic subjects and other diagnostic subjects should be directly
selected by users manually. Ultimately, users should be responsible
for appropriate clinical use of the product. The system of Samsung Medison
provides both basically provided automatic setting and selectable manual setting.
Output affects Acoustic intensity directly. Once diagnostic subjects are set, Output
control can be used to raise or lower Intensity output. Through Output control,
Intensity level can be selected lower than the highest setting. If using carefully,
you can always select excellent image quality and minimum Output intensity.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-21


1.5.1.3 Indirect Controls
Indirect controls have an indirect effect on Acoustic intensity and mainly affect
imaging mode, pulse repetition frequency, focal depth, pulse length, probe
selection etc. The characteristics of ultrasound beam are determined depending
on the choice of image mode. 2D mode is scan mode and Doppler mode is stop
or unscanned mode. Stop ultrasound beam focuses energy to one place. Moving
or scan ultrasound beam disperses energy across area and is focused on the
same area only for a fraction of unscanned mode time. Pulse repetition frequency
or repetition rate represents the number of ultrasonic blast of energy occurring
during a period of time. As pulse repetition frequency gets higher, pulse of energy
during a period of time increases more. Some kinds of controls as follows affect
pulse repetition frequency: focal depth, display depth, sample volume depth, color
sensitivity, number of focal zones and sector width controls etc. Focus of
ultrasound beam affect resolution of images. To maintain or improve resolution
in several focuses, various outputs on focal zone are necessary and this is one of
system optimization functions. Several experiments require different focal depth. If
adjusting the focus to the appropriate depth, resolution is improved. Pulse length
is the time while ultrasound waves are generated. The longer pulse is, the greater
time-average intensity value is. As Time-average intensity increases, the
possibility of cavitation and temperature rise will be greater. Pulse length
or ultrasonic generation length or pulse duration time is Output pulse duration time
in Pulsed Doppler. Also, if raising Doppler sample volume, pulse length also
increases. Probe selection also has an indirect effect on Intensity. Tissue
attenuation changes according to frequency control. The higher probe operating
frequency is, the greater attenuation of ultrasound energy is. If probe operating
frequency gets higher, stronger Output intensity is necessary when scanning in
the deeper place. To scan more deeply in the same Output intensity, lower probe
frequency is required. Therefore, using Gain and Output more than necessary
means that lower frequency probe is necessary
without corresponding improvement in image quality.

1.5.1.4 Receiver Controls


When trying to improve image quality, the user uses receive controls. These
controls have no effect on Output. Receiver controls only affect the method that
ultrasound Echo is received. These controls are Gain, TGC, Dynamic range and
image processing. One thing to keep in mind with respect to Output is that
receiver controls should be optimized before Output increases. For example, by
optimizing Gain before increasing Output, you should improve image quality.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-22


Service Manual

1.5.1.5 Additional Considerations


The shortest scanning time should be maintained and scanning should be done
only for medical purposes. Try to avoid compromising with Quality hastening the
experiment. Insufficient experiments require further reinforcement and ultimately, it
results in time delay. Diagnostic ultrasound waves are one of important tools in the
field of medicine and should be used efficiently and effectively as with other tools.

1.5.1.6 Output Display Features


System Output display is composed of two basic indices, mechanical index and
temperature index. Again, thermal index is divided into soft tissue (TIs), bone (TIb)
and skull (TIc). Among 3 kinds, one thermal index is always displayed on the
screen. Which one is displayed is determined depending on close diagnostic
subjects and by user choice or system setting. Mechanical index increases in 0.1
unit in the range of 0.0 to 1.9 and is displayed continuously. Thermal index is
composed of 3 indices and only one thing is always displayed among them. Each
probe diagnostic subject has suitable selection suitable for the combination. TIb or
Tis is continuously displayed from 0.0 to maximum Output based on the probe
and diagnostic subjects and increment is 0.1. It is an important factor of characteristic
index reaction according to diagnostic subjects of default setting. Default setting is System
control state and is set in advance by manufacturers and operators.
The system has basic index setting for probe diagnostic subjects. This default setting is
automatically read by the ultrasound system when new patient data is entered into system
database or diagnostic subjects are changed. Among 3 thermal indices, which index
will be displayed is determined based on the following categories.
Index appropriate for diagnostic subjects: Tis is used for soft tissue image and TIb
is used for bones or focus near bones. It relieves the factors artificially raising or
lowering temperature index records such as position of bone or fluid or flow of
blood. For example, this is the case that practical possibility for local heating is
lower than thermal index display due to rapidly attenuating tissue path.
Unscanned mode operation compared to probe mode affects temperature
index. In case of scan mode, the heating possibility increases as closer to the
surface and in case of unscanned mode, the heating possibility increases as
deeper to Focal zone.
Always limit ultrasound exposure time. Do not hurry the experiment. Maintain the
index to the minimum and always limit exposure time without compromise with
Diagnostic sensitivity.

1) Mechanical Index (MI) Display
The mechanical biological effect is the beginning phenomenon occurring when

Chapter 1 Safety 1-23


Output of a certain level was exceeded. However, the beginning level changes
depending on the type of tissues. The possibility of mechanical biological effect
changes depending on Peak pressure and ultrasound index. MI explains these
two factors. The higher MI value is, the greater the possibility of occurrence of a
mechanical biological effect is. There is no specific MI value showing
that mechanical effects are actually occurring. MI should be used only
as guidance to implement ALARA principle.
2) Thermal Index (TI) Display
TI tells users the possibility of temperature rise which is present in the focus
above the bone of ultrasound beam or Body tissue or the surface of the body. TI is
temperature rise expectation in characteristic body tissues. The
substantial amount of temperature rise is affected by factors such as kinds of
tissues, Vascularity, operating mode etc. Because TI is used only as the basic
guideline to implement ALARA principle. Thermal index of bones(TIb), for example,
tells users potential heating that may occur in or near the focus after ultrasound
beam passes through Fluid or soft tissue such as 2-3 month-
old fetus skeleton. Skull thermal index (TIc), for example, tells you potential
heating of bones that may occur on the surface of skull etc. or near it. Body
tissue thermal index (TIs) tells you potential heating that may occur in Soft
homogeneous tissue. In Miscellaneous system setting, you can select Tis or Tib
by using TIs/TIb selection. Tic is displayed if you select Trans cranial application.
3) Mechanical and Thermal indices Display Precision and Accuracy
MI and TI precision is shown in 0.1 unit in the system. Accuracy estimate of MI
and TI display on the system can be found in Acoustic Output Tables manual. This
accuracy estimate is based on changeable range of probe and system, unique
Acoustic output modeling errors and measurement variability and is as follows.
Displayed values should be construed as related information helping system
operator to conduct according to the principles by using the system carefully.
The values should not be construed as the actual physical value in tissues or
organs in question. The initial data used to support Output display are
from laboratory measurement criteria based on AIUM measurement
standards and these measurement criteria are applied to algorithm to calculate
Output values to be displayed. Many assumptions used in the process of
measurement and calculation are essentially conservative. Over-estimation of
substantial in situ exposure on numerous tissue paths is included in the
measurement and calculation process. For example, measured water tank values
are depreciated by considering the mutual attenuation effect of 0.3dB/cm-MHz,
the conservative industrial standard. The conservative value for tissue features
was selected to be used in TI model. Conservative value for absorption rate of
tissue or bone, blood perfusion rates, blood heat capacity and
tissue temperature conductivity etc. are included.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-24


Service Manual

Steady state temperature rise is estimated in industry-standard TI model and this


assumes that ultrasound probe lay in one place long enough to be considered that
it is steady state. When evaluating the accuracy of display values, numerous
factors are considered.
Among them, hardware change, evaluation algorithm accuracy
and measurement variability, variability between probe and system are important
factors. Probe variability is shown as the result of sensitive lens focusing on
parameter changes, Process-related impedance differences and Crystal
efficiencies of Piezoelectric. Differences in efficiency and system pulse voltage
control also affect changes. Algorithm has its unique uncertainty in predicting
Acoustic output value exceeding the range of Pulser voltages and possible
system operating conditions.
Inaccuracy of measurement criteria are related to the differences between
Hydrophone calibration and function, location, sorting and digitizing tolerance and
test operators. Conservative assumption on Output prediction algorithm of Linear
propagation through attenuation media of 0.3dB/cm-MHz is not considered
in measuring the accuracy of the display in any depth. The same attenuation
in 0.3dB/cm-MHz or linear propagation also does not occur in water tank
measurement or tissue paths of most of the body.
In the body, various tissues and organs have different attenuation characteristics.
But, there is little attenuation in water. In the body and water tank measurement,
when Pulser voltages rise, linear propagation and Saturation losses
occur. Display accuracy estimation is based on probe and systems,
unique Acoustic output modeling error and variation range of measurement
variability. Display accuracy estimation is measured based on AIUM measurement
criteria but not based on nonlinear loss effect for measured values or Error caused
by measurement.

1.5.1.7 Control effect- Control Affecting the indices


When various system controls are adjusted, TI and MI values may be changed.
While this is the most clearly revealed when power control is adjusted, other
system controls affect On-screen output values.

1) POWER
Power controls system Acoustic output. 2 real time Output values of TI and MI
appear on the screen. These change as the system responds to power
adjustment. In combination modes such as simultaneous color, 2D mode, Pulsed
Doppler, all of each mode is added to total TI. Each mode is the major factor of
this total TI and displayed MI appears from the mode with the largest peak
pressure.

Service Manual

1.5.1.8 2D mode Controls


1) 2D mode size
Frame rate will rise if narrowing Sector angle. Then, TI also increases. Pulser
voltage is automatically adjusted low with software control so TI is maintained to
less than system maximum. Decrease of Pulser voltage decreases MI.
2) ZOOM
If enlarging images, Frame rate will rise. Then, TI also increases. To improve
resolution, the number of Focal zones will increase automatically. The highest
Intensity may occur at different depths so this will bring the change of MI.
3) Persistence
As persistence is lower, TI will decrease. Pulser voltage will rise automatically.
Rise of Pulser voltage will raise MI.
4) Focal no.
If there are many Focal zones, frame depth or focal depth is automatically
changed and therefore, both TI and MI are changed. As Frame rates are lower, TI
decreases. Displayed MI will respond to the area that will be the highest Intensity.
5) FOCUS
If changing focal depth, MI is changed. In general, when focal depth is close to
natural focus of Transducer, MI value will be higher.

1.5.1.9 Color and Power Controls


1) Color Sensitivity
If increasing color sensitivity, TI rises and more time is consumed to scan color
image. Color pulses are the main pulse type in this mode.
2) Color Sector Width
If narrowing color sector width, color Frame rate rises and TI also increases. The
system lowers Pulser voltage automatically and maintains it to less than the
maximum. If lowering Pulser voltage, MI decreases. If Pulsed Doppler is also
being operated, Pulsed Doppler will maintain the main mode and the change of TI
will be small.
3) Color Sector Depth
If color sector depth is deepened, color Frame rate will be reduced automatically
or new color focal area or color pulse length will be selected. TI will change by
the combination of these effects. In general, color sector depth increase, TI
decreases. MI will respond to the highest Intensity of the main pulse type, color
pulse. However, if Pulsed Doppler is also operating, Pulsed Doppler will maintain
the main mode and change of TI will be small.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-27


4) SCALE
If increasing Color velocity range by using scale control, TI may increase. The
system will be adjusted automatically to keep Pulser voltage less than system
maximum. Decrease of Pulser voltage also decreases MI.
5) SEC WIDTH
If narrowing 2D mode sector width in color images, color Frame rate rises. TI will
increase and MI will not change. If Pulsed Doppler is operating, Pulsed Doppler
will maintain the main mode and the change of TI will be small.

1.5.1.10 M mode and Doppler Controls


1) Speed
M Mode and Doppler Sweep speed adjustments will not affect MI. If M mode
Sweep speed changes, TI will change.
2) Simultaneous and Update Methods
If using Combination modes, both TI and MI are affected through combination of
pulse types. During Simultaneous function, TI will be Additive. During Auto-update
and Duplex, TI will display main pulse types. Displayed MI will come from the
mode with the highest maximum pressure.
3) Sample Volume Depth
When Doppler sample volume depth increases, Doppler PRF
is automatically lowered. If PRF is lowered, TI will also decrease. System will
maintain Pulser voltage to less than the system maximum by automatically
lowering it. Decrease of Pulser voltage decreases MI.

When new image mode was selected, both TI and MI will be changed into default
settings. Each mode has corresponding pulse repetition frequency and
maximum Intensity point. In combined or simultaneous mode, TI is the sum of
Contribution from operated mode and MI is MI for focal area and mode with
intensity of the greatest derated rate. If mode is turned off and selected again, the
system will go back to the mode of previous state.

1) Probe
Each useful probe model has unique specification for contact area, beam shape
and center frequency. When selecting probe, default values are initialized.
MEDISON plant default values differ depending on probe, diagnostic subject and
selection mode. Default values are selected as less than the standard of

FDA depending on the use.


2) DEPTH
Increase of 2D mode depth automatically lowers 2D mode Frame rate. This will
reduce TI. The system will automatically select deeper 2D mode focal depth. The
change of focal depth will cause the change of MI. Displayed MI is MI of the area
with the largest Intensity.
3) Application
Acoustic output default values are set when selecting diagnostic subject.
MEDISON plant default values differ depending on probe, diagnostic subject and
selected mode. Default values are selected as less than the standard of
FDA depending on the use.

1.5.1.13 Acoustic Output and Measurement


Since diagnostic ultrasound is used for the first time, research on Bio effects of
human that may be caused due to exposure to ultrasound waves has been
conducted in numerous scientific and medical laboratories. In October 1987, the

Chapter 1 Safety 1-29


American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine(AIUM) approved the reported
prepared by Bio effects Committee (Bio effects Considerations for the Safety of
Diagnostic Ultrasound, J Ultrasound Med., Sept. 1988: Vol.7, No.9 Supplement)
and it is often called as Stowe Report and is the report that reviewed useful data
on the possible effects of ultrasound exposure. Another report, “Bio effects and Safety of
Diagnostic Ultrasound” provides more current information as of January 28,
1993. Acoustic output on this system was measured and calculated based on
December 1985 “510(K) Guided for Measuring and Reporting Acoustic Output of
Diagnostic Ultrasound Medical Devices but only Hydrophone complies with the
requirements of Acoustic Output Measurement Standard for Diagnostic Ultrasound
Equipment” (NEMA UD 2-1992).

1.5.1.14 In Situ, Derated and Water Value Intensities


All Intensity parameters are measured in water. Since water does not absorb
Acoustic energy, this water measurement represents the worst value. Biological
tissues do not absorb Acoustic energy. In any aspect, true value of Intensity differs
depending on the amount and type of tissues and the frequency of ultrasound
waves passing through the tissues. In Situ, intensity value in tissues, intensity
value in tissues has been measured in accordance with the following equation:

In Situ = Water [ e − ( 0.23alf ) ]


where: In Situ = In Situ Intensity Value
Water = Water Value Intensity
e = 2.7183
a = Attenuation Factor
Tissue a(dB/cm-MHz)
Brain .53
Heart .66
Kidney .79
Liver .43
Muscle .55
l = skin line to measurement depth (cm)
f = center frequency of transducer/system/mode combination (MHz)

Since ultrasound waves are likely to pass through tissues whose length and type
are changed during the experiment, it is difficult to predict true In Situ intensity.
If attenuation

Chapter 1 Safety 1-30


Service Manual

factor is 0.3, it is used as the general reporting purpose;


Therefore, In Situ value usually reported uses the following equation:

In Situ (derated) = Water [ e − ( 0.069lf ) ]


Since this value is not true In Situ intensity, the term, “Derated” is used.
Despite the same operating conditions, maximum Derated and maximum water
values do not always occur. Therefore, reported maximum water values and
Derated values may not be related to In Situ (Derated) equation. Multi-zone array
transducer with maximum water values Intensities in the deepest area is the
example. The same transducer may have the greatest Derated intensity in one of
the shallowest focal areas.

1.5.1.15 Acoustic Output and measurement


The terms and symbols used on Acoustic output table are defined in the following
paragraph.

ISPTA.3 Derated spatial-peak temporal-average intensity (Milliwatts per square


centimeter).
ISPPA.3 The derated spartial-peak pulse-average intensity
(Watts per square centimeter).
If Global maximum MI is reported, the value of IPA.3 may be reported
instead of ISSPPA.3 in the position of Global maximum MI(IPA.3@MI).
MI If The Mechanical Index. ISPPA.3 is 190W/cm2, the value of MI,
(MI@ISPPA.3) may be reported instead of MI(Global maximum value) in the
position of ISPPA.3.
Pr.3 Derated peak rare factional pressure combined with Transmit pattern which
is the source of values reported as less than MI (Megapascals).
WO Ultrasonic power (Milliwatts). WO is total Time-average power for operating
conditions which is the source of ISPTA.3;
For operating conditions supposed to be reported as less than ISPPA.3, WO
is Ultrasonic power combined with Transmit pattern which is the source of
value reported as less than ISPPA.3.
Fc Center frequency (MHz).
For MI and ISPPA.3, fc is Center frequency combined with Transmit pattern
which is the source of Global maximum value each parameter.
For ISPTA.3, for Combined modes accompanying other Center
frequency, fc is defined as the whole range of center frequencies of each

Transmit patterns.
ZSP Axis distance that reported parameters will be measured (Centimeters).
x-6,y-6 This is In-plane (Azimuthal) and Out-of-plane (Elevational) -6 dimensions,
respectively in X-Y plane where Zsp is founded.
PD pulse duration combined with Transmit pattern which is the source the values
reported of each parameter (Pulse duration) (1/1000000 second unit).
PRF Pulse combined with Transmit pattern which is the source of reported values
of each parameter
Pulse repetition frequency) (Hz).
EBD Entrance beam dimensions on Azimuthal and Elevational Planes
(Centimeters).
EDS Entrance dimensions of the scan on Azimuthal and Elevational Planes
(Centimeters).

1.5.1.16 Acoustic Measurement Precision and Uncertainty


Acoustic measurement precision and uncertainty are as follows.

Quantity Precision Total Uncertainty

PII.3 (derated pulse intensity integral) 3.2 % +21 % to - 24 %


Wo (acoustic power) 6.2 % +/- 19 %
Pr.3 (derated rarefaction pressure) 5.4 % +/- 15 %
Fc (center frequency) <1% +/- 4.5 %

1) Systematic Uncertainties
For Pulse intensity integral, Derated rarefaction pressure Pr.3, Center frequency
and Pulseduration, effect screening on accuracy is included in the analysis due
to the following recorded information:
Hydrophone calibration drift or errors.
Hydrophone / Amp frequency response.
Spatial averaging.
Alignment errors.
Voltage measurement accuracy, including.
Oscilloscope vertical accuracy.
Oscilloscope offset accuracy.
Oscilloscope clock accuracy.
Oscilloscope Digitization rates.

Chapter 1 Safety 1-32


Service Manual

Noise.

Acoustic power measurements using systematic uncertainty Radiation Force are


measured by using Calibrated NIST acoustic power sources. Also, as First
supplement on IEC publication 1161, we recommend analytical data in September
1993 conducted by working group of IEC technical committee 87 and prepared by
K. Beissner. This document includes analysis and discussion on source/measure
effects of Error and the causes are
as follows:

Balance system calibration.


Absorbing (or reflecting) target suspension mechanisms.
Linearity of the balance system.
Extrapolation to the moment of switching the ultrasonic transducer (compensation
for ringing and thermal drift).
Target imperfections.
Absorbing (reflecting ) target geometry and finite target size.
Target misalignment.
Ultrasonic transducer misalignment.
Water temperature.
Ultrasonic attenuation and acoustic streaming.
Coupling or shielding foil properties.
Plane-wave assumption.
Environmental influences.
Excitation voltage measurement.
Ultrasonic transducer temperature.
Effects due to nonlinear propagation and saturation loss.

The overall findings of this analysis regards rough Acoustic Power Accuracy figure
as +/- 10% for the frequency range 1 - 10MHz.

Chapter 5 Product structure 5-7


5.4.4 Principle of behavior

5.4.4.1 High Voltage Switching Process


A30 supports 128 Channel and uses up to 192 Element Probe. Since Pulser and
Receiver circuit configuration of BF(Beam former Board) exists only in 128
Channel, separate Element Selection is required. Element Selection uses 24 High Voltage
Switches and performs Switching with Control Signal transmitted from Control
Logic(CPLD) of BF(Beam former Board). Control Signal is connected through Mother
Board Connector. Inside of High Voltage Switch is composed of Shift Register and High
Voltage FET.

5.4.4.2 Probe Switching


It consists of the circuit to select one from 4 probes. It can select Probe ordered by User by
using Relay of Latched type. Relay is driven by Probe Select signal transmitted from
Control Logic(CPLD) of CW(Continuous Wave Board). Probe Select signal is connected
through Mother Board Connector.

5.4.4.3 CW Probe Switching


Steered CW switching
Since Steered CW has Tx 40CH and Rx 40CH separately from Beam former Board, it
converts signal line from Phased Array Probe into CW Board when steering CW Mode by
using Not latch Relay. Because it is 40CH, there are 20 AGN20012 for CW Tx and 20
AGN20012 are equipped for CW Rx.

Static CW switching
Separately from Beam former Board, Static CW has Tx 1CH and Rx 1CH. In Static CW
Mode, signal line from Pencil Probe is directly connected to CW board without Relay.

Chapter 5 Product structure 5-8


Service Manual

5.5 Beam former Board

5.5.1 Main function


A30 has 2 Beam former Boards (hereinafter called as BF Board) and implements Active
aperture of 128 Channel. BF Board generates ultrasound waves by passing High Voltage

5.5.4 Principle of behavior

5.5.4.1 TX Pulser
Exciting pulse data provided in BF ASIC(MCB124) passes TX Pulse Buffer and then is
provided to TX Pulser(MAX4811). TX Pulser creates Bipolar Pulse by using Exciting pulse
data and High Voltage provided in DC-DC Power Module. Bipolar Pulse generates
ultrasound waves by being transmitted to Probe Element by using PSA (Probe Select
Assembly). Supporting up to 192Element with Active aperture 128 Channel, separate
Element Selection is needed and High Voltage Switch is used for this. High Voltage Switch
is configured in PSA(Probe Select Assembly).

5.5.4.2 Receive Channel


Receive Channel conducts the function of conversing Analog Digital with the part Beam
forming by amplifying Echo that is spread from human medium and reflected. It consists of
Limiter, Pre-Amp, TGC-Amp, Low-Pass Filter and A/D Converter.
1) Limiter
It removes unnecessary signals from Echo signals returned through High Voltage Switch
of PSA(Probe Select Assembly). Tx Pulse of up to 180 Vpp and Echo signal of a few mV
are mixed and RX data actually needed is Echo signal of a few mV which is very small
signal so Tx Pulse should be removed before sending it to Pre-Amp. After removing about
0.6V or more of signal, Limiter sends Echo signal to Pre-Amp.
2) Pre-Amp
Pre-Amp plays a role of amplifying Echo signal of a few mV which is untreated small
signal.
3) TGC-Amp
TGC(Time Gain Compensation) Amp is composed of 4 Channel per 1. Echo signal
spread and reflected in the medium has the characteristic of attenuating depending
on time or distance and it conducts the function to compensate it.
4) Anti-aliasing Filter (Low Pass Filter)

Chapter 5 Product structure 5-10


Service Manual

Low-Pass Filter filters Noise in Stop Band not bandwidth of ultrasound signal. It also plays
a role as Anti-aliasing Filter minimizing Aliasing phenomenon that may result from high-
frequency Probe such as 7.5MHz Probe etc. Aliasing phenomenon of high-
frequency Probe occurs due to limitation of Sampling Clock in BF ASIC.
5) A/D Converter
It plays a role of converting digital signal to be used in Digital Beam forming from analog.

5.5.4.3 Digital Beam forming


Ultrasound waves generated in Probe select Channel approach using several Elements
for TX Focusing. Ultrasound waves generated in Channel unit return as Echo signal
spread and reflected in the medium. However, since Echo is Probe Element and is not
returned at the same time, it comes back with time difference to each Element and the
way to compensate this time difference is required. The reason is for RX Focusing and it is
also very important part to configure ultrasound image. Digital Beam forming conducts
sampling for Data of the place where time axis and curve meet and Echo signal entered to
Probe Element and saves it in Memory. Data accumulated in Memory after Sampling is
finished means that when it is stored, time compensation is also finished and time
compensation is made in Sampling Clock itself. RX Focusing is finished only if reading
stored data in Memory and adding it. Since this way requires different Sampling Clock for
every Element, VSCG(Variable Sampling Clock Generator) is required. VSCG(Variable
Sampling Clock Generator) uses 61.6Mhz the same as A/D Sampling Clock and
necessary Data is made inside of BF ASIC(MCB124A).

5.7.4 Principle of behavior of DSP Part

5.7.4.1 Image Data processing of BW mode and M mode


RF Data made in BF Board is entered to FPGA Input. Entered RF Data is converted to RF
Data that operation is possible in FPGA Input and then, is entered to ASIC(MCB028A)
Input. ASIC(MCB028A) makes BW mode Image Data(hereinafter BW Data) and sends it
to FPGA. ASIC(MCB028A) not only make BW Data but treats the functions such as
FSI(Full Spectrum Image) and Spatial Compound Imaging (SCI), Trapezoidal imaging,
Synthetic aperture etc. In particular, BW Data is made by receiving RF Data and through
several filters and DTGC(Digital Time Gain Compensation), Decimation, Quadrature mixer,
Envelope detection, Log compression etc. Like this, BW Data made in ASIC(MCB028A) is
entered again to FPGA. Going through Lateral filter to remove Multi beam artifact and
FSI(Full Spectrum Image) processing, final BW Data is transferred to FPGA. For reference,
BW Data can be also used as Motion mode Image Data.

5.7.4.2 Doppler Image Data processing


RF Data made in BF Board is entered to FPGA Input. Entered RF Data is converted to RF
Data that operation is possible in FPGA and then, is entered to input of ASIC(MCB028A).
Receiving RF Data and processed with DTGC(Digital Time Gain Compensation),
Decimation, Quadrature Mixer etc., ASIC(MCB028A) is made to I/Q data (In-phase &
Quadrature Data). I/Q Data is entered again to FPGA. I/Q Data is processed in FPGA and
makes Doppler Data and transfers it to DMA & RTC Part. Detailed descriptions are as
follows. FPGA taking over I/Q Data processes Filtering process and CW I/Q Data from
CW Board also transfers final Doppler Data to PC Part through the same processing.
Since PW and CW cannot be processed at the same time, all commands will follow
the internal control process. After going through Clutter Filter, I/Q Data is sent to FFT(Fast
Fourier Transform) circuit to make Doppler Spectrum and Doppler Data is made by
detecting Power, Velocity, Variance components which are Doppler basic elements. Again,
it is entered to DSP FPGA and delivered to DMA & RTC Part of BE Board. After going
through Filtering process in FPGA, I/Q Data goes through Clutter Filter to remove
Wall(wall of blood vessels) Noise in Doppler DSP and then makes Doppler Sound by
processing in Hilbert transform the separation of the direction of sound.

5.7.4.3 Color Image Data processing


RF Data made in BF Board is entered to FPGA Input. Entered RF Data is converted to RF
Data that operation is possible in ASIC(MCB028A) and then, is entered to input of
ASIC(MCB028A). Receiving RF Data and processed with DTGC(Digital Time Gain
Compensation), Decimation, Quadrature Mixer etc., ASIC(MCB028A) is made to I/Q data
(In-phase & Quadrature Data). I/Q Data is entered again to FPGA. I/Q Data is processed
in ASIC(MCB028A) and makes Color Data and transfers it to PC

Chapter 5 Product structure 5-18


Service Manual

Part. Detailed descriptions are as follows. FPGA taking over I/Q Data is transferred to
ASIC(MCB028A) to detect Color component. However, Color component includes
Wall(wall of blood vessels) Noise so it is transferred again to FPGA to go through the
processes such as Rejection, Smooth Filter, Post filter etc. Color Data is completed in
these processes and then, is delivered to DMA & RTC Part of BE Board.

5.7.5 Principle of behavior of Analog Sound Part


It processes Doppler Sound and outputs it to Speaker. Doppler Sound is made in Doppler
Part and transferred to Analog Sound Part. Doppler Sound goes through Audio Digital
Analog Converter process because Speaker receives Analog waveforms. And then, it
removes Noise and amplifies Doppler Sound to transfer to Speaker.

5.7.6 Principle of behavior of DMA & RTC Part


(FPGA including function)
DMA Part of DMA & RTC Part (Direct Memory Access & Real Time Controller Part)
temporarily saves ECG Data from ECG Module and Image Data(BW, Doppler, Color) that
Signal Processing is completed in DSP Part and transfers them to PCI of PC
Part depending on the purpose of Image Data. RTC Part is responsible for the function
determining the order of behavior and reference signal of all Image Modes and also
processes Control of Audio Digital Analog Converter.

5.7.6.1 DMA Part


DMA(Direct Memory Access) is largely divided into FA(Frame Average), DMA and ECG
In/Out Part. FA(Frame Average) processes BW, Doppler, Color Data as the mean value of
Scan line of current Frame and Scan line Data of prior Frame. And DMA saves Frame
Averaged BW, Doppler, Color Data temporarily and transfers necessary Data through PCI
BUS when there is a request from PC Part .Also, it saves ECG Data and transfers it in the
same way. Since DMA processes by using PC Part and DMA Path, it plays a very
important function in improving the function of the product.

5.7.6.2 RTC Part


RTC(Real Time Controller) is the part that makes reference signal needed
for overall system behavior in real time and controls the behavior of the system. It is
responsible for making signals of PRF(Pulse Repeat Frequency), OF(One Frame),
RP(Rate Pulse), Linotype, Scan Line etc. needed in DSP Part of BE Board and BF Board
and controlling them. Also, internally, it conducts the function to control the flow of Data in

9.1 Overview
Probe is the device obtaining image data by transferring and receiving ultrasound waves
and is also called as Transducer or Scan head. This product limits the temperature that
patients can contact to 43 degrees Celsius and ultrasound output values comply with the
limit standards of U.S. FDA. The power protection fuse of this product protects the product
from overcurrent. If power monitoring protection circuit detects overcurrent, it prevents the
probe surface from overheating by immediately blocking current connected to probe and
limits ultrasound output.

9.5 Probe safety matters


Probe may be easily damaged by incorrect use or contact with certain chemicals. Check
before• after use of probe, probe cable, case and lens etc. in accordance with the manual.
Check if there are cracks on probe, splitting, leakage of solution, damage by sharp corner
etc. and if damage is detected, stop using probe and contact Samsung Medison service
team. Damaged probe may cause injury such as electrical shock etc. to patients or users.

˙A
C ˙U
˙ T˙ ˙IO
˙N˙

• Do not apply mechanical shock to probe.


• Do not let probe cable be stepped to the wheels and do not forcefully bend or pull.
• Do not immerse probe in inappropriate materials such as alcohol, bleach, ammonium
chloride, hydrogen peroxide etc. Do not expose it to more than 50℃.

9.5.1 Operation of probe and infection control


Probe used in ultrasound imaging diagnostor is directly contacted to patients. Depending
on the type of checkup, this kind of contact occurs in a wide range from the test of general
skin contact to reinfusion situation during surgery. The most effective way to prevent
infection among patients is to use disposable probe but probe is complicated to be made
and expensive equipment so it should be reused. Thus, by adhering to the instructions for
use, risk of infection should be minimized among patients.

˙A
W ˙R
˙N˙ ˙IN
˙G˙

• Neurological treatment or test should not be conducted for patients with Creutzfeldt-
Jakob disease (a fatal brain disease caused by virus) and if probe was used, it cannot be
disinfected in any way.

˙A
C ˙U
˙ T˙ ˙IO
˙N˙

• Adequate cleaning and disinfection is required to prevent inspection. This is the


responsibility of the user managing and maintaining the immune process of equipment.
Always use the cleaner authorized by law.

Chapter 9 Probe 9-7


9.5.2 Risk of electrical shock
Since probe uses electrical energy, when contacting with a conductive material, it may
cause damage such as electrical shock to patients or users.

˙A
W ˙R
˙N˙ ˙IN
˙G˙

• Get regular electrical short tests from Samsung Medison Service team.
• You should not immerse probe in liquid enough to be waterlogged.

dysfunction or damage of seal and lens, strain relief, housing.
• If twisting, pulling or bending probe cable excessively, it may be disconnected. Power
protection fuse protects probe and product from over current.
• If power monitoring protection circuit detects overcurrent, prevent the surface of probe
from overheating by immediately blocking current connected to probe and limit
ultrasound power output.
• The product limits the temperature that patients can contact to less than 43 degrees
Celsius and ultrasound output values comply with the limit standards of U.S. FDA.
