In the field of ultrasound imaging, resolution enhancement is an up-to-date challenging task. Many device-based approaches have been proposed to overcome the low resolution nature of ultrasound images but very few works deal with post-processing methods. This paper investigates a novel approach based on semi-blind deconvolution formulation and alternating direction method framework in order to perform the ultrasound image restoration task. The algorithm performance is addressed using optical images and synthetic ultrasound data for a various range of criteria. The results demonstrate that our technique is more robust to uncertainties in the a priori ultrasonic pulse than classical non-blind deconvolution methods.
