Towards quantitative 3D broadband ultrasound characterisation of breast lesions

Alsulami, Abdullah Ali (2014) Towards quantitative 3D broadband ultrasound characterisation of breast lesions. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis describes the development and scientific validation of a real-time quantitative 3D flat-bed ultrasound scanner. Novel short-time Fourier transform software facilitated broadband ultrasound attenuation maps of a breast phantom, enabling detection and identification of both cystic and solid lesions.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
