Paper Abstract

We compare the quoted and extracted human measurements on ultrasound images in order to detect the sources of error in such measurements. We extract the measurement cursors from the captured images and compare with the stated differences and pixel resolution. We found that there is a high degree of variability in the quality of the human measurements compared to the image extracted measurements of the cursor positions, as well as a significant reduction in accuracy. As a solution, we propose improved cursor modes for ultrasound devices and improved procedures for measurements.
