Object motion in the time domain 2D ultrasound images can be transformed into the frequency domain where it reveals the motion frequencies, magnitudes and phases of the frequencies, and frequencies at a certain time. That frequency information can be used to describe the motion quantitatively. In 2D ultrasound imaging aligning with some timing or gating methods, real time motion analysis in the frequency domain is possible. This invention is to bring echo phase imaging (EPI), a frequency domain parametric imaging method, or other similar methods into real time application.
