An estimation technique was used to estimate average scatterer diameters and concentrations in rats. As such, parametric images were constructed incorporating the scatterer property estimates. A weighting scheme was used in the estimator based on the expected SNR of different frequency components. Examination of the scatterer property estimates inside and outside the tumors showed that the average scatterer diameter and acoustic concentration could be valuable as diagnostic indicators of disease.
