Abstract

In the grey scale ultrasound image, different tissues present as different speckled patterns of greys, whites and blacks. Interpretation of these patterns now rests largely on the experienced operator/observer. Such pattern-recognition is best performed while in the the process of patient scanning, with the possibility of reviewing neighboring cross-sectional images, and indeed acquiring images from alternative angles of approach.
