Title (EN) TISSUE IDENTIFYING METHOD IN ULTRASONOGRAPHY AND ULTRASONOGRAPH
(FR) PROCEDE ECHOGRAPHIQUE D'IDENTIFICATION DE TISSUS ET ECHOGRAPHE ASSOCIE
Abstract:
(EN) A tissue identifying method in ultrasonography in which the elasticity of a tissue to be examined in a local small region handled as a unit is measured using ultrasonic waves. Elastic data on each known kind of tissues includes elastic modulus frequency histograms of the local small regions of each kind and is managed using a data library. On the basis of the elasticity data collected as a result of the measurement and with reference to the elasticity data on each known kind of tissues, the kind of the tissue to be examined is identified.
(FR) Procédé échographique d'identification de tissus selon lequel l'élasticité de tissus à examiner dans une petite zone locale considérée comme une unité est mesurée à l'aide d'ondes ultrasonores. Les données d'élasticité concernant chaque type connu de tissu comprennent des histogrammes de fréquences de modules d'élasticité des petites zones locales de chaque type, et sont gérées à l'aide d'une bibliothèque de données. Sur la base des données d'élasticité recueillies en tant que résultat des mesures et en référence aux données d'élasticité de chaque type connu de tissus, le type du tissu à examiner est identifié.
