The statistics of speckle patterns in ultrasound images have potential for tissue characterization. In "fully developed speckle" from many random scatterers, the amplitude is widely recognized as possessing a Rayleigh distribution. This study examines how scattering populations and signal processing can produce non-Rayleigh distributions. The first order(More)
When imaging is performed by using a coherent signal, the result is frequently a realization of the stochastic process known as speckle. The information sought from this process is often the mean value of its envelope or intensity at each point in the image plane. When only a single realization of the process is available, ergodicity is required within a(More)
