Paper Abstract

A simple but efficient filtering method, suited to fit 3D ultrasonic images features, has been developed, using the order statistics filtering principle. The main idea is to use only a combination of 2D filters to process a 3D image, thus sparing a large amount of processing time. This method is possible because of some properties of the ultrasonic images. This paper presents results obtained using this method, and explains some techniques used to evaluate its efficiency and to analyze the effect of parameters variations.
