We are investigating the utility of a new ultrasonic tissue characterization technique, specifically two-dimensional (2-D) spectrum analysis of radio-frequency backscatter signals, which promises to provide quantitative measures of the physical properties of tissue microstructures. Previously successful 1-D spectrum analysis is expanded to 2-D to more fully characterize diagnostically significant features of biological tissue. Two new spectral functions, radially integrated spectral power (RISP… CONTINUE READING
