Paper Abstract

An autoregressive model is generated for a two dimensional pulsed ultrasound data. The autoregressive parameters are used to differentiate between various liver textures,potential for pathology characterization is discussed. The same model could be used to seperate regions of normal and diseased tissues,subtracting original image out of the developed texture. The theory of 2-D autoregression is developed as well as discussing the overall applicability and drawbacks of the technique.
