Cortical bone and the surrounding soft tissues are attenuating and heterogeneous media, which might affect the signals measured with axial transmission devices. This work aims at evaluating the effect of the heterogeneous acoustic absorption in bone and in soft tissues on the bone ultrasonic response. Therefore, a two-dimensional finite element time-domain(More)
The aim of this work is to evaluate the effects of the heterogeneity and anisotropy of material properties of cortical bone on its ultrasonic response obtained by using axial transmission method. The heterogeneity and anisotropy of material properties are introduced by using a parametric probabilistic model. The geometrical configuration of the tested(More)
