SUPRA is an open-source pipeline for fully software defined ultrasound processing for real-time applications. Covering everything from beamforming to output of B-Mode images, SUPRA can help to improve the reproducibility of results and does allow for a full customization of the image acquisition workflow. Including all processing stages of a common ultrasound pipeline, it can be executed in 2D and 3D on consumer GPUs in real-time. Even on hardware as small as the CUDA enabled Jetson TX2, SUPRA allows for 2D imaging in real-time. You can access the code on our github page: https://github.com/IFL-CAMP/supra

Figure 2: Run-time benchmark Configurations:
The Benchmark shows, that with SUPRA a software ultrasound pipeline can be executed even on moderate graphics hardware for 2D imaging and that 3D imaging is possible in real-time on consumer cards. For more details, refer to our work on SUPRA.
