System and Method for Ultrasonic Image Processing
A system that incorporates teachings of the present disclosure may include, for example, an ultrasonic (US) imaging system having a transducer, and a controller managing operations of the transducer. The controller can be operative to cause the transducer to transmit a coded ultrasound signal to an object, cause the transducer to receive an altered coded ultrasound signal from the object, decode the altered coded ultrasound signal to attain a desired bandwidth that exceeds an impulse response of the US imaging system, subdivide the attained bandwidth of the decoded ultrasound signal into a plurality of sub-bands, and generate an image for each sub-band from signals included in each sub-band of the decoded ultrasound signal. Additional embodiments are disclosed.
