Abstract
This paper describes an ultrasonic spatial localization system for a sonometric probe, to build 3D images of a fetus. The main objective of such a system is a medical diagnostic help. A method to improve accuracy of ultrasonic telemeter is developed and gives us encouraging results. We arrive to measure a distance with accuracy around 0.6 mm for 1.5 meters ranging. To aim a localization accuracy less than 0.1 mm, we work on this system with better techniques like programmable analogic device and numerical systems.
