The elastic microstructure of various tissues.

Abstract:

Previous work has indicated that a modified Quate-Lemons scanning acoustic microscope (SAM) is capable of measuring the acoustic propagation properties of sections of biological tissue. The lens is excited by an impulse, rather than a tone burst, and the undemodulated returning signal from the tissue is recorded. The variations in received signal with time are used to deduce the sound speed, attenuation, impedance, and section thickness. In this article, the technique is applied to various ty...
