Ultrasound ASCII data

Dear Experts,

I would like to understand how ASCII ultrasound data will be used?

Current advanced instruments provide data save option to USB in their specific data format. How ASCII data format is going to help customers when compared with latest option on advanced instruments?

Thanks for your reply.

Some users of ultrasonic instruments are interesting in extracting pure A-Scan data for their own proprietary off-line processing, ASCII is just of one of several common formats accepted by Labview, Mathlab, etc and the users do require the same - here you may see the video on how the A-Scans composing the cross-sectional view files (B-Scans, S-Scans), C-Scans, may be extracted; the txt extension in the file name corresponds to ASCII: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkk2RkoU-q8

For someone not dealing with the own proprietary data processing the ASCII data extracted out of the instrument files will be useless

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your reply & information.

Customers will expect raw data or will this be processed data? (As per the video, I feel it is processed data).

Please confirm.

it is an array of unprocessed A-Scans as they were captured
