Welcome to the home page for Field II! Here you will find
all the information about the program along with executables and examples
that you can download.
The Field IIpro parallel version has now
been released for use. It is found in versions for
both Matlab and Octave and it also exist in a C library version
usable for buidling stand-alone executables. More information about
the program can be found at: Field IIpro
in the left menu. Here you can also find a paper about the performance of Field IIpro.
Version 3.24 of Field II for widows has been released for Matlab 8.10.
This mex file is compiled using the GNU gcc compiler and should hopefully fix
the problem with Field II under windows. You
can find the code at: Download/For Matlab 8.20
in the left menu.
You can now follow Field II on LinkedIn and
post comments and discussions. You can freely

Field II Ultrasound Simulation Program, where news about
new version of Field II will be posted.
Field II is a program for simulating ultrasound
tranducer fields and ultrasound imaging using linear
acoustics. The programs uses the Tupholme-Stepanishen method
for calculating pulsed ultrasound fields. The program
is capable of calculating the emitted and pulse-echo
fields for both the pulsed and continuous wave case
for a large number of different transducers. Also
any kind of linear imaging can be simulated as well as
realistic images of human tissue. The program
is running under Matlab on a number of different
operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X), and the programs are currently free to use
under certain restrictions (see copyright).
The latest release of the program is
version 3.24 of May 12, 2014. Note that this code will work with
Matlab 8.20 under Linux, Mac and Windows in 64 bits versions.
Note that for the Windows 64 bits version you have to have
the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 run-time libraries for this version to work.
This you can either get by installing the compiler and using mex -setup
or download the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 run-time libraries from the link:
The latest News is from May 24, 2014 about
version 3.24 of Field II for windows compiled with the GNU gcc compiler.
Why a new web-site? The University have decided to close down
the Linux server running this site in May 2012, and I had to find an
alternative. I was also increasingly getting tired of having yet another
web-addres that people should search to find. I have therefore decided
to privately host this web-address, and I hope to keep it alive as long
as there is any interest in Field II, which I hope will be for a very long
time. If you have any comments or suggestions you can contact me at
