Although the minimum variance (MV) beamformer can provide enhancement in both resolution and contrast of ultrasound images when compared with conventional delay-and-sum (DAS) beamforming, its clinical application is limited by its sensitivity to phase aberrations. Several robust MV beamformers have been proposed, but present limitations when faced with(More)
Sonoelastography is an ultrasonic technique that uses Kasai's autocorrelation algorithms to generate qualitative images of tissue elasticity using external mechanical vibrations. In the absence of synchronization between the mechanical vibration device and the ultrasound system, the random initial phase and finite ensemble length of the data packets result(More)
The minimum variance (MV) beamformer is an adaptive beamforming technique that can convey enhancements in resolution and contrast and that can be applied to various ultrasonic sequences, including plane-wave imaging. Despite its improvements, it is still susceptible to clutter. The present work uses the short-lag spatial coherence (SLSC) value as a(More)
The minimum variance (MV) beamformer has the potential to enhance the resolution and contrast of ultrasound images but is sensitive to steering vector errors. Robust MV beamformers have been proposed but mainly evaluated in the presence of gross sound speed mismatches, and the impact of phase aberration correction (PAC) methods in mitigating the effects of(More)
The minimum variance (MV) beamformer is a method that has the potential to enhance the resolution and contrast of ultrasound images. However, it suffers from sensitivity to speed of sound errors and aberration. Although there have been several studies on the application of phase aberration correction (PAC) methods to conventional delay-and-sum (DAS)(More)
