This paper describes a clinical study conducted on a animal model to assess the 3-D imaging capability of a imaging probe. A commercially available 128 7 MHz laparoscopic imaging probe was modified by the of a motor for rotation and a position sensor to locate image plane in the 3-D volume. Images were acquired on a of organs, including the gallbladder, liver, kidney, and bladder. Because the system uses a conventional one array for the acquisition, the image quality is high. surface renderings of the organs with additional 2-D sections demonstrate the features of the software for a of viewing modes.
