Abstract

A study was performed on malignant and benign breast tissue classification performance. The classification was examined for generalized-spectrum parameters computed from RF ultrasound data when a preclassification of subregions based on general scattering properties was performed. The results using a clinical database of 84 patients showed statistically significant improvements when only coherent scatterer subregions were used as compared to using all subregions within the region of interest.
