Our group is developing a method based on 3D high-frequency ultra-sound (HFU) and 3D quantitative ultrasound (QUS) to help pathologists detect micrometastases in freshly-excised lymph nodes of patients with histologically-proven primary cancer. From a signal and image processing perspective, we report on our efforts to acquire and classify lymph-node tissue(More)
This work investigates the statistics of the envelope of three-dimensional (3D) high-frequency ultrasound (HFU) data acquired from dissected human lymph nodes (LNs). Nine distributions were employed, and their parameters were estimated using the method of moments. The Kolmogorov Smirnov (KS) metric was used to quantitatively compare the fit of each(More)
