A Method for Quantitative Ultrasonic Backscatter Estimates in the Presence of Phase Distortion


A method has been developed which can predict the backscatter properties of biological tissues from single amplitude spectra. Backscatter analysis from single spectra, based on the ratio of the Fourier transforms, is strongly influenced by the amplitude fluctuations, due to the inhomogeneous nature of biological tissues. The theoretical basis for the… (More)
