A theoretical treatment of the scattering of ultrasound from blood is given, assuming that the blood behaves essentially as a continuum. The scattering then arises from fluctuations in the mass density and compressibility of the blood, which is caused by a fluctuation in the red cell concentration. An expression for the received signal in ultrasonic blood… CONTINUE READING
