The article discusses the advantages of using sound speed correction (SSC) method for ultrasonic imaging. It has been found out that variations in tissue density and compressibility result to changes in sound velocity which produce aberrations in ultrasound images and lead to defocusing. SSC could address such aberrations with its ability to improve lateral resolution, reduce clutter, improve signal-to-noise ratio and enhance contrast, leading to better diagnostic confidence.
