  • Publication number: 20150065878
    Abstract: A method of generating an image by using ultrasound waves. The method includes acquiring a first bio-signal of an object, generating at least one first ultrasound frame by using at least one echo signal obtained from at least one first ultrasound wave transmitted to a preset region of interest (ROI) of the object, generating a second ultrasound frame by using an echo signal obtained from a second ultrasound wave transmitted to the preset ROI, and acquiring a second bio-signal of the object at a time when the second ultrasound wave is transmitted to be used for generating the second ultrasound frame, and determining a reference frame from among the generated at least one first ultrasound frame based on the generated second ultrasound frame and the acquired second bio-signal.

  • Publication number: 20140207051
    Abstract: Provided are an ultrasound system and methods that deliver medication through skin by using multiple frequencies. The method to deliver medication through skin include irradiating the skin with ultrasound having a first frequency to cavitate a skin tissue; irradiating the skin with ultrasound having a second frequency, which is lower than the first frequency, to collapse the cavitated tissue; and delivering the medication through the collapsed tissue, wherein a single transducer is configured to produce the ultrasound having the first frequency and the ultrasound having the second frequency.
