A new, simple extrapolation technique to enhance the lateral resolution of pulse-echo imaging systems is presented. The method attempts to build an image that could be obtained with a transducer aperture larger than that physically available, extrapolating the information contained in the image to be enhanced. The extrapolation process requires small hardware modifications of the standard echographic systems. The computational cost is very low compared with Fourier-based deconvolution approaches. The obtained computer simulations give very interesting and promising results.
