Abstract

The following describes the implementation of a system for ultrasonic mammography. The system employs adaptive imaging and processing techniques to produce high-resolution breast tissues sonograms. The time-domain imaging technique provides quantitative maps of intrinsic acoustic tissue properties using conventional pulse-echo transducers and clinical scanning system. The increased image resolution and quantitative maps provide improve diagnostics tools compared with conventional B-scan images.
