In this paper we have described two new imaging devices using the specificities given by the low frequencies used in ultrasonics. The analogic technics allow real time reconstruction schemes and in the ultrasound imaging area classical holographic technics may easily be bypassed. The two devices described appear as analogical Fresnel transform devices whose applications may be extended to other domains as the radioastronomy area. Experimental results confirm the theoretical predictions and images of in vivo structures as the heart have been obtained.
