Dr. Pengfei Song from the University of Illinois and his collaborators at the Texas A&M University developed a novel high volume-rate 3D ultrasound imaging method and a device based on Fast Acoustic Steering via Tilting Electromechanical Reflectors (FASTER).  This technology addresses challenges of conventional 3D ultrasound imaging like high cost and low volume scan rate. FASTER is capable of high volume rate (up to 500 Hz) large field-of-view 3D imaging with conventional 1D transducers.
