Usefulness of ultrasonic speckle decomposition procedure for tissue characterization

Abstract

Speckle is an inherent characteristic of tissues when assessed by ultrasound. De-speckling is performed to improve the visualization of anatomical details but the information encoded in speckle is often discarded. In this paper we propose an ultrasonic decomposition procedure which estimates despeckled and speckle images starting with images created from… (More)
