Abstract

The subject of the present research is solving the problem of the noisy and the informative texture elements separation with taking into account the specific traits of the ultrasound visualization. A noise suppression procedure is realized on the basis of the elaborated mathematical model. The elaborated technique has been tested in a clinic. The testing has confirmed its efficiency. The work has been implemented under the support of the Russian Foundation of Basic Research (RFBR), project № 08-01-12011-ofi.
