OBJECTIVE To estimate the average scatterer properties from ultrasonic backscatter in tissues for evaluating differences between neoplastic and healthy tissues. METHODS Parametric images of 8 retired breeder rats in which spontaneous mammary tumors had developed were created by superimposing color-coded pixels related to the estimated average scatterer properties on conventional gray scale B-mode images. RESULTS The images showed a distinct difference between the tumors and surrounding… CONTINUE READING
