This paper presents a new feature extraction method for the segmentation of ultrasound images. Wavelet transform is proposed for determination of the textures in the ultrasound images. Elements of the feature vectors are formed by the wavelet coefficients at several decomposition level. In this study, incremental self-organized neural network (INeN) is proposed as the classifier. The classification performance is increased by using the wavelet transform and the INeN together.
