Ultrasound (US) is safe, portable, durable, and low-cost. These factors make it ideal for applications such as breast cancer detection by non-physicians in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To enable this application, we have initiated a study focused on the following goals: the computer-assisted detection (CAD) of breast lesions and the optimal selection of US parameters. We also investigated the performance benefits of exploiting US signals for a plurality of US acquisition parameters.
