In Ultrasound Tomography (UST) transducers around the boundary of a medium measure the scattered acoustic waves arising from transmitted pulses emitted from the transducers. In medical applications, the possibilities for transducer placement are constrained by the geometry of the human body. In this talk, optimal transducer placement and excitation patterns will be discussed for several geometries, and their effects on image quality and computation time will be compared for simulated medical imaging data.
