Transcranial sonography has been an increasingly widespread diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of neural diseases like Parkinson's disease. However, the utilization of modern 3D ultrasound techniques has been hampered by the acoustical barrier of the skull bones. We report the development of and preliminary results from an ultrasound helmet which uses mechanical beam-steering to allow 3-D reconstruction of deep brain structures such as the substantia nigra.
