Several existing studies showed the interest of estimating the multifractal properties of tissues in ultrasound (US) imaging. However, US images are not carrying information only about the tissues, but also about the US scanner. Deconvolution methods are a common way to restore the tissue reflectivity function, but, to our knowledge, their impact on estimated fractal or multifractal behavior has not been studied yet. The objective of this paper is to investigate this influence through a dedicated simulation pipeline and an in vivo experiment.
