Paper Abstract

Ultrasound/tissue interactions provide a fertile base for imaging techniques, and a number of novel and apparently diverse methods for human imaging are currently being developed. An original, unified theory of these quantitative scatter-imaging techniques is developed. It is demonstrated that the success of the methods is inextricably bound together with the development of physical models for the ultrasound/tissue interaction. The concept of image 'fuzziness' is introduced and contrasted against attained image resolution.
