Ultrasound images are characterized by their special speckle appearance, low contrast, and low signalto-noise ratio. It is always challenging to extract important clinical information from these images. An important step before formal analysis is to transform the image to significant features of interest. Intensity based methods do not perform particularly well on ultrasound images. However, it has been previously shown that these images respond well to local phase-based methods which are… CONTINUE READING
