TU‐B‐220‐04: 3D Inverse Scattering and Refraction Corrected Reflection Ultrasound
Purpose: Establish the ability of our 3D breast scanner to present 360 degree compounded reflection images coincident and registered with speed and attenuation maps generated by the same machine.Expand
TH-C-332-10: Ultrasound Inverse-Scatter Tomography of the Breast
Purpose: To present the design and performance of a new automated whole‐breast ultrasoundcomputed tomography (USCT) system that employs 3D inverse‐scatter reconstruction. Method and Materials: TheExpand
TU‐E‐220‐04: Quantitative Ultrasound Computed Tomography for Volumetric Breast Imaging
TLDR
The basic imaging paradigm of medicalUS has remained unchanged, namely image formation results from transmission‐reception of 180 degree backscatter assuming straight‐line propagation. Expand
TU‐A‐220‐01: Quantitative Imaging via Inverse Scattering
Purpose: To establish the ability of our 3D registered inverse scattering based breast scanner to provide highly reproducible quantitative monitoring of breast health over short and long intervalExpand
