A system-based model is proposed to describe and simulate the ultrasound signal backscattered by red blood cells (RBCs). The model is that of a space-invariant linear system that takes into consideration important biological tissue stochastic scattering properties as well as the characteristics of the ultrasound system. The formation of the ultrasound signal is described by a convolution integral involving a transducer transfer function, a scatterer prototype function, and a function… CONTINUE READING
