Due to parallel advances in signal processing and computer hardware in the last 15 years, quantitative ultrasound techniques have reached maturity, allowing for the construction of quantitative maps or images of soft tissues. This book will focus on 5 modern research topics related to quantitative ultrasound of soft tissues: - Spectral-based methods for tissue characterization, tissue typing, cancer detection, etc.; - Envelope statistics analysis as a means of quantifying and imaging tissue properties; - Ultrasound elastography for quantifying elastic properties of tissues (several clinical ultrasound scanners now display elastography images); - Scanning acoustic microscopy for forming images of mechanical properties of soft tissues with micron resolution (desktop size scanners are now available); and - Ultrasound computer tomography for breast cancer imaging (new ultrasound tomography systems have been developed and are currently under evaluation clinically).

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The editors made an excellent choice of their collection of methods and applications in this rapidly evolving QUS research field. Therefore the reader whatever pre-knowledge he comes with will find basic or advanced information in this book. For newcomers to this topic the book is very suitable to get an excellent understanding for the basic and statistical methods used in QUS . . This book is recommended for lecturers or teachers . ."
