A method was developed to map tissue properties of the entire breast including sound speed and attenuation using fully 3D nonlinear inverse-scattering tomography. Clinical measurements suggest that in breast tissue benign and cancerous lesions may be identified in part by these inherent acoustic parameters. Sound speed accuracy and linearity are very high(More)
A nonperturbational inverse scattering solution for the scattering integral equation (SIE) is presented. The numerical discretization of the SIE is performed by the moment method (MM) using sinc basis functions. Previous algorithms using the alternating variable (AV) nonlinear iteration with algebraic reconstruction technique (ART) solution of the(More)
We present a method to incorporate the relaxation dominated attenuation into the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation of acoustic wave propagation in complex media. A dispersive perfectly matched layer (DPML) boundary condition, which is suitable for boundary matching to such a dispersive media whole space, is also proposed to truncate the FDTD(More)
Recent published results in inverse scattering generally show the difficulty in dealing with moderate to high contrast inhomogeneities when employing linearized or iteratively linearized algorithms (e.g., distorted Born iterative method). This paper presents a fully nonlinear algorithm utilizing full wave field data, that results in ultrasound computed(More)
Quantitative Transmission Ultrasound (QTUS) is a tomographic transmission ultrasound modality that is capable of generating 3D speed-of-sound maps of objects in the field of view. It performs this measurement by propagating a plane wave through the medium from a transmitter on one side of a water tank to a high resolution receiver on the opposite side. This(More)
We describe a novel 3-D ultrasound technology, the quantitative transmission ultrasound system and algorithm to image a pendent breast in a water bath. Quantitative accuracy is verified using phantoms. Morphological accuracy is verified using cadaveric breast and in vivo images, and spatial resolution is estimated. This paper generalizes an earlier 2-D(More)
