D. Romero Laorden, J. Villazón Terrazas, M. Santos Peñas, M.A. García Izquierdo, O. Martínez Graullera

Resumen

Este trabajo analiza la implementación software en un sistema de imagen ultrasónica del Total Focusing Method para la compensación dinámica en tiempo real de los tiempos de vuelo para emisión y recepción de todos los puntos de la imagen. Para ello, haciendo uso de técnicas GPGPU, se analizan dos diferentes alternativas de implementación, mostrando como una planificación adecuada de acceso a los datos permite mejorar los tiempos de ejecución del algoritmo.
