24 June 1998 Quantitative ultrasound tissue characterization using texture and cepstral features
Author Affiliations +
Various researchers have used texture analysis to perform ultrasound tissue characterization with mixed results. Others have used spectral parameters to classify tissue. Several groups have used a feature attributed to the mean scatterer spacing (MSS) as a discriminating feature for tissue classification. We have previously shown that the locations of peaks in the complex cepstrum (PCEP) provide a good estimate of MSS in phantom and simulation studies. In this work, we show that by combining PCEP with texture-based features, we are able to distinguish between normal and hepatitis patients with a high degree of accuracy.
