  • Publication number: 20240119705
    Abstract: An ultrasound imaging system may acquire an image of a liver. The liver may be segmented from the image. Parameters, such as image homogeneity map, intensity probability chart, and/or speckle size diagram, may be extracted from the liver portion of the image. The parameters may be used to determine whether fatty liver deposits are diffuse or inhomogeneous. In some examples, inhomogeneous regions may be excluded from the calculation of liver fat quantification measurements. In some examples, the inhomogeneous regions may be displayed so that a user may select a region of interest that excludes the inhomogeneous regions to calculate the liver fat quantification measurements.

  • Publication number: 20230107556
    Abstract: A method for training a machine learning model to generate a characteristic pattern, the method includes obtaining training data associated with a reference feature in a reference image. The training data includes (i) location data of each portion of the reference feature, and (ii) a presence value indicating whether the portion of the reference feature is located within a reference assist feature generated for the reference feature. The method includes training the machine learning model to predict a presence value based on the actual presence value in the training data. The predicted presence value indicates whether a portion of a feature (e.g., a skeleton point on a skeleton of a contour of the feature) is to be covered by an assist feature.
