This paper presents results from ultrasonic simulation and phantom studies to demonstrate the performance of generalized spectrum techniques in detecting and estimating duct structures on the order of those in breast tissue. Results demonstrate accurate estimation (about 12% mean square error) and reliable detection (90% or greater) in the presence of diffuse scatterers and system noise.
