Certain diffuse liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis, are difficult to diagnose from the information contained in ultrasound images. A signal processing procedure is described which estimated the value of an acoustic attenuation coefficient of the liver in vivo from reflected ultrasound signals. The results of a clinical trial involving 14 patients indicate a correlation between the coefficient values and the liver diseases: inflamed livers produced lower values than cirrhotic livers… CONTINUE READING
