Ultrasonic tracking of shear waves using a particle filter.

Abstract

PURPOSE This paper discusses an application of particle filtering for estimating shear wave velocity in tissue using ultrasound elastography data. Shear wave velocity estimates are of significant clinical value as they help differentiate stiffer areas from softer areas which is an indicator of potential pathology. METHODS Radio-frequency ultrasound echo… (More)
