Currently ultrasonic B-scan images combine many acoustic properties and imaging system parameters to form the image. It may, however, be advantageous to image acoustic properties individually or in select groups to obtain a more direct interpretation of the results. This report describes two methods of quantitative ultrasonic imaging which we are pursuing. The two methods are: single-feature parametric imaging and multi-feature tissue-type imaging. Trade-offs among contrast, noise, and spatial resolution using computer simulations and phantom measurements are discussed.
