Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Assessing and optimizing diagnostic performance of medical imaging technology is important and challenging. We have extended an information theoretic approach based on the ideal observer for the discrimination of breast lesions in sonography to discover system configurations optimized for specific lesions features. The focus in this work is to examine the effects of various beamforming strategies on the discrimination of lesion boundary features.
