Abstract
Second order statistics have been derived for the speckle in diagnostic ultrasound that arises from diffuse (incoherent) scattering in the presence of distributed and organized specular (coherent) scattering. They serve as the basis for a three-dimensional feature space in which tissue textures can be classified. The covariance matrix of the measurements in this space is a generalization of the speckle spot number or sampling concept that arises in the study of signal or lesion detectability.
