Improvement of Breast Elastogram Quality in Static Ultrasound Elastography using Biophysical Parameters
Static ultrasound elastography is a technique that provides information on local tissue elasticity. However, it is known that the quality of the image in static ultrasound breast elastography is significantly degraded by speckle noise, artifacts and poor information accuracy. In this context, the implementation of an optimum technique for treating the elastogram is then indispensable. In this article, the study focuses on the research for a strategy that reduces the propagation of speckle noise and artifact; biophysical parametric tools have been introduced to improve the quality of breast elastogram. The study was performed on 40 patients with malignant tumors. Accurate and excellent breast elastogram was observed in proposed method results.
