Paper Abstract

In this paper a computer system is presented which is aided to support the physician in the evaluation of muscle ultrasound images. For this purpose a multitude of texture features are calculated for each region of interest (ROl), from which one optimal subset is selected for the different diagnosis problems. The results achieved so far are presented and possibilities for improvement are discussed. Keywords: texture analysis, tissue characterization, feature extraction, ultrasound, neuromuscular diseases
