TBME, Featured ArticlesAutomated In Vivo Sub-Hertz Analysis of Viscoelasticity (SAVE) for Evaluation of Breast Lesions
Mahdi Bayat, Alireza Nabavizadeh, Viksit Kumar, Adriana Gregory, Michael Insana, Azra Alizad, Mostafa Fatemi
Many breast tumors found by palpation manifest as stiff masses. The stiffness of tumor is related to a mechanical property known as elasticity. Elastography methods use tissue elasticity as a biomarker to provide invaluable information that improves classification of the... Read more

TBME, Featured ArticlesBackground Removal and Vessel Filtering of Non-Contrast Ultrasound Images of Microvasculature
Conventional ultrasound Doppler imaging using classic FIR and IIR wall filters prohibits visualization of the small vessels due to strong Fourier spectral overlap between tissue and blood echoes. A clutter removal method is proposed that utilizes spatiotemporal coherence of the... Read more
