Abstract -- A method to evaluate a 3-D/2-D reconstruction technique of ultrasound images is presented. It is based on modeling and simulating the transmitted signal, the transducer, mediums through which the sound waves are propagating and the received ultrasound echoes from interfaces within the scanned object. The backscattered RF echoes are generated from a given 2-D or 3-D phantom or real images. They are collected along specified directions (defined by azimuth and elevation angles). Then, they are fed as input to an image reconstruction approach based on a beamforming technique and a frequencytime distribution approach, namely, the Wigner Ville Distribution (WVD). The original and the reconstructed images are compared to evaluate the reconstruction approach.
