Abstract

Modern two-dimensional echocardiographic systems contain microprocessors which will allow image enhancement to be performed in real time. The authors assess the ability of real-time image enhancement to improve real-time echocardiographic image quality and identification of the endocardium. Image enhancement is performed by histogram equalization using a look-up table derived individually for each subject. Image enhancement with this technique is found to markedly improve endocardial identification, but this is at the expense of overall image quality.
