To estimate perfusion using Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (DCE-US), some manufacturers provide software that analyses DICOM Raw Data formatted files. In those files, most of the information cannot be correctly interpreted except by the manufacturer software. This approach when available is often recommended over use of more accessible DICOM JPEG files which encapsulate ultrasound system images as compressed JPEG images. However, the manufacturers' dedicated software is machine specific… CONTINUE READING
