  • Patent number: 5224175
    Abstract: A method and device for interpreting and processing medical ultrasound and other video images. The mix of reflection coefficients in pixel windows is measured by determining the range and distribution of pixel gray scale values to establish "echoic texture" characteristics. These characteristics are compared with corresponding characteristics of known tissues. The degree of correlation allows a prediction of tissue characteristics of the examined window.
