        There has been research going on in this area at ASU for some time. The
problem with ultrasound data is that its unstructured (unlike CAT scan where
you get discrete 2D data slices), has a conical field of view, contains
noise and the data is over lapping - i.e. when a doctor moves the sensor on
say a woman's stomach he is collecting data over and over again over the
same region. If you want more information or want to talk research
opportunities please let me know. Recently funded research project called 3D
Knowledge has ultrasound data as one of the test bed
