Abstract

The method for image acquisition by an ultrasound scanner consists of withdrawing a first signal (generally analogical) from a video port of the ultrasound scanner, converting this first signal into a second signal (generally digital) interpretable by a personal computer, and feeding this second signal to the personal computer. The software for image acquisition by the ultrasound scanner comprises a first code portion for processing the first signal and for converting it into a second signal interpretable by the personal computer, and a second code portion for feeding this second signal to the personal computer.
