Abstract : Ultrafast ultrasound imaging has become an intensive area of research thanks to its capability in reaching high frame rates. In this paper, we propose a scheme that allows the extension of the current Fourier-based techniques derived for planar acquisition to the reconstruction of sectorial scan with wide angle using diverging waves. The flexibility of the proposed formulation was assessed through two different Fourier-based techniques. The performance of the derived approaches was evaluated in terms of resolution and contrast from both simulations and in vitro experiments. The comparisons of the current state-of-the-art method with the conventional delay-and-sum technique illustrated the potential of the derived methods for producing competitive results with lower computational complexity.
