A class of kernel based real-time elastography algorithms.

  title={A class of kernel based real-time elastography algorithms.},
  author={Md Golam Kibria and Md. Kamrul Hasan},
In this paper, a novel real-time kernel-based and gradient-based Phase Root Seeking (PRS) algorithm for ultrasound elastography is proposed. The signal-to-noise ratio of the strain image resulting from this method is improved by minimizing the cross-correlation discrepancy between the pre- and post-compression radio frequency signals with an adaptive temporal stretching method and employing built-in smoothing through an exponentially weighted neighborhood kernel in the displacement calculation… CONTINUE READING
