TL;DR: In this paper, a fast Fourier transform method of topography and interferometry is proposed to discriminate between elevation and depression of the object or wave-front form, which has not been possible by the fringe-contour generation techniques.
Abstract: A fast-Fourier-transform method of topography and interferometry is proposed. By computer processing of a noncontour type of fringe pattern, automatic discrimination is achieved between elevation and depression of the object or wave-front form, which has not been possible by the fringe-contour-generation techniques. The method has advantages over moire topography and conventional fringe-contour interferometry in both accuracy and sensitivity. Unlike fringe-scanning techniques, the method is easy to apply because it uses no moving components.

TL;DR: In this paper, the reduction in speckle that can be obtained with a compound scan with maximum amplitude writing is computed and the condition for the independence of two amplitude values is derived.
Abstract: Ultrasound images obtained with a simple linear or sector scan show a granular appearance, called "speckle." This speckle is analyzed. The reduction in speckle that can be obtained with a compound scan with maximum amplitude writing is computed. The reduction in speckle is almost as large as can be obtained with averaging. It depends on the number of independent amplitude values that are measured. The condition for the independence of two amplitude values is derived, and thus a limit is given for the possible reduction in speckle.
