Original Abstract

We present a new application of Nakagami distribution in medical ultrasonographic (USG) imaging. The parameter m from this distribution is used for parametric imaging and shows an alternatively ultrasound image. The application is in USG image analysis or segmentation. Our method is based on three dimensional sliding window (2 spatial and 1 temporal dimension) and can be used for static objects only. We use the envelope of the radiofrequency (RF) signal for estimation. Both, the simulated and real RF data are used for testing of our estimator.

Článek prezentuje novou aplikaci Nakagami rozložení v lékařské ultrasonigrafii. Parametr m z toho rozložení je použit pro alternativní zobrazení B-scenu. Metoda je založena na 3D, prostorovém a časovém, klouzavém okně a využívá radiofrekvenční data.
