Myocardial tissue characterization by autocorrelation of two-dimensional ultrasonic backscatter.


To evaluate a novel method for determining the spatial distribution of echocardiographic information based on the two-dimensional autocorrelation function, echocardiographic images were obtained from specific regions of interest from 10 healthy volunteers, seven patients with genetically defined hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and nine patients with pressure… (More)
