Data acquisition rates in pulsed ultrasound scanners are limited by the speed of sound in the human body. This poses severe limitations to the design of future ultrasound equipment, such as 3-D imaging scanners. The authors describe a technique for higher data acquisition rates based on the simultaneous transmission of multiple beams. By using a linear combination of the received beams, interbeam interference due to the sidelobe energy of the transmitting beams can be significantly reduced. The transformation coefficients are found by using a least squares minimization criterion. A simulation environment used for the evaluation of the authors' methodologies and various simulation results are presented.<>
