This study tries a quantitative characterization of the thyroid tissue as far as homogeneity and echogenicity are concerned, to quantitatively evaluate thyroid texture. Digital image processing techniques offer the opportunity for texture description. Although there is no formal definition of texture, this particular method of description can quantify properties such as smoothness, coarseness and regularity. First-order and cooccurrence features are quantified and multi factor analysis is useddoi:10.1109/itab.2010.5687628 fatcat:cwdstzc2mngfxdzxvhixyr476e
