This paper presents a new way of addressing beamforming in ultrasound imaging, by formulating it, for each image depth, as an inverse problem solved using elastic-net regularization. This approach was evaluated on both simulated and in vivo data showing a gain in contrast, while maintaining an increased value of the signal-to-noise ratio compared to two standard ultrasound beamforming methods.
