    In this paper, we present our research on the development of an automated medical ultrasound scanning system for the carotid artery using probe a supporting manipulator (parallel link mechanism). In particular, we detail the mechanism design of the manipulator and a real-time image processing algorithms to detect the carotid artery and tissue layer of its walls (in the B-mode of ultrasound image). Several sequential patterns of ultrasound probe trajectory were implemented in order to enable the manipulator to scan the surface of neck effectively. A set of experiments has been carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed system.
