ultrasonic waveguide?

Hello NDT experts,
I would appreciate any info. on the possibility of
an ultrasonic waveguide much like the optical waveguide
used in medical endoscopes and remote cameras. My
application is ultrasonic imaging, where due to high
EM noise the receiving transducer array needs to be
some distance away from the sample. A waveguide or
standoff that would preserve the acoustic wavefront
over say 5 inches distance would allow the receiving
array to be placed remotely from the sample and still
form images. Any suggestion's welcome, thanks for
your attention.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
