Sažetak
The evaluation of the performance of nine physiotherapy ultrasound transducers used clinically was performed in the hospital environment using an acoustically absorbing thermocromic tile developed at the National Physical Laboratory (UK). The method consists of exposing an acoustic absorber tile, part of which contains a thermochromic pigment, to the ultrasonic beam, thereby forming an image of the intensity profile of the transducer. Images acquired using thermochromic materials were postprocessed in order to estimate effective radiating area (ERA) and beam nonuniformity ratio (BNR) for ultrasound transducers operating within the frequency range from 1.0 to 3.3 MHz, and nominal applied intensities in the range of 1-2 W/cm2. Results of our measurements have shown that thermocromic tile can be used for quality control of ultrasound transducers in the hospital environment. Experimental results show that proposed method can be used to distinguish highly non - uniform ultrasound beams with high value of BNR. Influence of exposure duration on obtained ERA and BNR values was also analysed. Our results show that values for ERA increase with insonation time, while BNR values decrease. In order to compare our results with theory we have estimated temperature rise in thermochromic material experimentally and compare it with theoretical prediction.
