Validation of a new blood-mimicking fluid for use in Doppler flow test objects.
A blood-mimicking fluid (BMF) suitable for use in Doppler flow test objects is described and characterised. The BMF consists of 5 microns diameter nylon scattering particles suspended in a fluid baseExpand
Attenuation of ultrasound in skeletal muscle.
Ultrasonic attenuation in fresh and 5% formalin fixed beef skeletal muscle has been measured, as a continuous function of frequency, in the range 1-8 MHz, for muscle fibre orientations both parallelExpand
Measurement of thermal and ultrasonic properties of some biological tissues
The measurement of thermal and ultrasonic properties of biological tissues is essential for the assessment of the temperature rise induced in vivo by diagnostic ultrasound. In this paper, we presentExpand
Hardness and ultrasonic characteristics of the human crystalline lens
Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between hardness of the human crystalline lens and its acoustic characteristics. Setting: St. George's Hospital Medical School, University of London, London,Expand
The differential and total bulk acoustic scattering cross sections of some human and animal tissues.
This paper describes methods that have been developed for the accurate measurement of total and differential bulk acoustic scattering cross sections. Analysis is made of the sources of uncertaintyExpand
Musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging: diagnostic and treatment aid in rehabilitation
AbstractUltrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system has been used for almost 30 years. This paper reviews the history and various applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging,Expand
Tissue characterization from ultrasound B-scan data.
An approach to ultrasonic tissue characterization, using textural features of the B-scan image, is described and methods and criteria for selecting optimum combinations of these are discussed. Expand
The Effect of Velocity on the Appearance of Embolic Signals Studied in Transcranial Doppler Models
Background and Purpose Transcranial Doppler ultrasound can be used to detect circulating cerebral emboli. Recent studies have demonstrated that embolus size is significantly related to both theExpand

An automated online technique is described for measurement of artery diameter in flow-mediated dilation (FMD) ultrasound (US) images, using artificial neural networks to identify and track artery walls. Expand
Evaluation of backscattering coefficients for excised human tissues: Principles and techniques
Abstract A method has been developed for the absolute determination of the backscattering coefficient of ultrasound by soft mammalian tissues. An expression is derived for the backscatteringExpand
