Abstract

This paper describes an implementation of 3D ultrasound data reconstruction, display and analysis within AutoCAD (R) 2000. In addition, a number of standard weld templates, scalable via dialog boxes, have been implemented. Currently, MIPS (Micropulse) formatted data can be imported, reconstructed and displayed. A series of dialog boxes allows specification of the scanning configuration. The reconstruction algorithm takes full account of reflection and mode conversion at the component surfaces. The resultant ultrasound image is presented in '3D', with tools for image manipulation and interrogation.
