The provided software and data were used to demonstrate an instrumentation strategy for an ultrasound system to fully characterize the ultrasound probe force, orientation, and optionally its movement during imaging while efficiently synchronizing all data. A known method for compensation of the ultrasound probe weight was implemented, and a novel method for temporal synchronization was developed, which utilizes the electrocardiogram feature built in to the ultrasound. The system was used to perform anatomical imaging of...
