Paper Abstract

The methods of statistical pattern recognition are well suited to the problems of in vivo ultrasonic tissue characterization. This paper describes supervised pattern recognition methods for selecting features for tissue classification, calculating decision boundaries within the selected feature space, and evaluating the performance. We address the considerations of dimensionality and feature size which are important in classification problems where the underlying probability distributions are not completely known. Examples are given for the detection of diffuse liver disease in the clinical environment.
