Images that map statistics of ultrasound backscatter obtained from wavelet decomposition of ultrasound parameter images are used to highlight spatial variation in scattering related to changes in the choroid's vascular conformation. Wavelet analysis ultrasound parameter images are used to identify changes in the scattering structure. The technique can also be applied to other vascular beds and other tissue, as well as non-biological material that can be interrogated with high frequency ultrasound.
