The three-dimensional structure of features within a sample can be indicated (but not actually depicted) by an imaging mode known in Nordson SONOSCAN
'S line of C-SAM tools as the Time Difference mode.
To image the sample acoustically, a Sonoscan
C-SAM[R] acoustic micro-imaging tool was used.

Tools like those in Sonoscan
's C-SAM[R] series are suitable for samples made of typical production metals, ceramics, and polymers and that have at least one flat surface, as well as for cylindrical samples.
It is difficult to differentiate between paraovarian cyst and ovarian cyst clinically and on sonoscan
. CT scan and MRI are more useful but can delay the treatment.
"This is more like the tractor beams in sci-fi movies," says coauthor Patrick Dahl, who is now an engineer at Sonoscan
There, Agilent, Aeroflex, atg, Goepel, JTAG, Landrex, Omron, Seica, Sonoscan
, and Teradyne were among scores of vendors duking it out for attention.
Much of the detailed information comes from Sonoscan
's applications laboratories, which have imaged acoustically and analyzed tens of millions of MLCCs.
Wafers, which make up part of the circuitry in computer chips, can now be bonded using a new automated bonding system developed by Sonoscan
