An approach to ultrasonic tissue characterization, using textural features of the B-scan image, is described. Portions of a B-scan image, 64 X 64 pixels spatially by 8 bits deep, are acquired from regions of interest and subjected to computer analysis. A systematic approach to defining a set of 93 textural features of a B-scan is described and methods and criteria for selecting optimum combinations of these are discussed. As a test of its power, the approach has been applied to the… CONTINUE READING
