This experiment shows a typical application of ultrasound in medical diagnostics. A benign tumour on a realistic breast dummy is which has to be diagnosed, localized and measured with an ultrasound cross-section imaging method.


  • Ideal experiment for medical students in the preclinical phase: true-to-life breast cancer examinaton using a breast model
  • The echoscope used in the experiment can also be used for other medically relevant experiments like A-scan, B-scan and ultrasound tomography
  • Display of ultrasound image as for a diagnostic system


  • Examine the breast dummy and search for any pathological changes. Try to characterize them as accurately as possible (size, location, mobility, strength of the change).
  • Produce an ultrasonic B-scan image of the breast dummy, especially in the regions of interest. Based on the ultrasound image, estimate the location and magnitude of the tumour.
