    • Region growing segmentation of ultrasound images using gradients and local statistics 

      Mercado-Aguirre I.M.; Patiño-Vanegas A.; Contreras-Ortiz S.H. (SPIE, 2017)
      This paper describes a region growing segmentation algorithm for medical ultrasound images. The algorithm starts with anisotropic diffusion filtering to reduce speckle noise without blurring the edges. Then, region growing ...
    • Selection of a Stopping Criterion for Anisotropic Diffusion Filtering in Ultrasound Images 

      Guillen J.E.I.; Contreras-Ortiz S.H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019)
      Ultrasound imaging is a safe and cost-effective diagnostic tool, but the quality of the images is affected by speckle noise and artifacts. Anisotropic diffusion filters can be used to reduce noise and preserve the edges ...
    • Texture Analysis of Ultrasound Images for Pneumonia Detection in Pediatric Patients 

      Contreras-Ojeda S.L.; Sierra-Pardo C.; Dominguez-Jimenez J.A.; Lopez-Bueno J.; Contreras-Ortiz S.H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019)
      Pneumonia is a condition that can be life-threatening and affects a high number of children around the world. Lung ultrasound can be used for the diagnosis of pneumonia, but requires high experience. This paper presents ...
    • Ultrasound image enhancement: A review 

      Contreras Ortiz S.H.; Chiu T.; Fox M.D. (2012)
      Medical ultrasound imaging uses pulsed acoustic waves that are transmitted and received by a hand-held transducer. This is a mature technology that it is widely used around the world. Among its advantages are that it is ...
