Medical Ultrasonography is a valuable imaging technology for medical diagnostics and to guide interventional procedures. Ultrasound imaging is particularly useful in breast cancer detection and diagnosis for women with dense breast tissue where traditional mammography may fail to detect suspicious areas. However, ultrasound imaging suffers from speckle noise, an inherent characteristic of all coherent imaging techniques due to the presence of sub-resolution scatterers. Speckle noise produces a… CONTINUE READING
