 first reference figure 1 , shows in block diagram form an ultrasound system constructed in accordance with the principles of the present invention. The ultrasound probe 10 contains a transducer array 12 of transducer elements that transmit ultrasound waves into the body and receive returning echo signals. The emitted waves are directed into a beam or scanline to interrogate a region of interest in the body. One-dimensional arrays can be used to emit beams in a single plane for two-dimensional imaging. For the stenosis assessment examination according to the present invention, the probe 10 is a matrix array probe having a two-dimensional array of transducer elements 500 coupled to a probe microbeamformer 502 . Matrix array probes can be used to transmit beams over volumetric regions of the body for three-dimensional imaging. As explained more fully below, the beam can be steered and focused in different directions by the probe to interrogate tissue in a particular loc...
