Abstract: According to the ultrasonic propagation characteristics in continuous mediums, the propagation problem of sound waves in inhomogeneous mediums was studied. Based on the scattering field wave equation and total field wave equation, the method of moments was introduced into the discrete problem of equations which provided a theoretical basis for solving wave equations. The Born iterative algorithm was adopted to solve the nonlinear problem of equations. The truncated singular value decomposition regularization method was adopted to solve the stability of solutions. Experimental results indicate that the above methods can be applied to the strong scattering field and have higher image quality.


Keywords: Wave equation, iterative algorithm, Truncated singular value decomposition, Ultrasound computed tomography.
