Translation of fetal short-lag spatial coherence (SLSC) imaging into clinical practice: A pilot study

Published

Conference Paper

© 2017 IEEE. Fetal short-lag spatial coherence (SLSC) imaging has demonstrated 64-85% increases in CNR and 17-29% increases in contrast relative to conventional B-mode imaging. However, despite its proven technical efficacy, the viability of fetal SLSC in the clinical setting remains unknown. The aims of this study were: 1) To demonstrate the feasibility of real-time SLSC imaging on existing hardware and 2) to evaluate expert-user preference between SLSC and B-mode within the clinical workflow.
