Annular arrays are transducer assemblies with circular or ringlike elements, used to focus the beam. Annular arrays must be steered mechanically since they can only be fired in an outward-inward progression due to the rings. Annular arrays reduce section thickness artifacts.

Arrays are spatial arrangements of transducers or transducer elements.
See also Composite Array.

Array types used in ultrasound imaging:
point annular array - elements arranged in concentric circles;
point curved array - elements arranged along a convex curve;
point linear array - elements are arranged along a line;
point rectangular array - elements arranged in a rectangular pattern.

An array transducer is composed of multiple piezoelectric crystal elements arranged in an array. Arrays are transducer assemblies with a row of elements, used to focus the beam.

Types of array transducers:
point Linear array transducer = the arrays are arranged along a line.
point Curvilinear or curved transducer = the arrays are arranged along a convex curve. A curved array is similar to a linear array except that the image created is a sector-type.
point Annular array transducer = the arrays are arranged in concentric circles.
point Rectangular array transducer = the arrays are arranged in a rectangular pattern.

Composite ArrayMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Probes Transducers -
 
Composite arrays are combinations of piezoelectric ceramics and polymers that form a new material with different properties. Piezocomposites improve the performance of usual arrays such as the mechanically scanned annular array and the linear phased array.
Piezocomposites reduce the acoustic impedance with a better impedance match with tissue. The result is a reduction of the reverberation level in the near field. Unwanted surface waves propagating laterally over the transducer are suppressed. The composite materials allow to vary the electromechanical coupling constant, and to give better control over the trade-off between sensitivity and bandwidth.
