To study the shear-thinning rheological behavior of blood, an acoustical measurement of the erythrocyte aggregation level can be obtained by analyzing the frequency dependence of ultrasonic backscattering from blood. However, the relation that exists among the variables describing the aggregation level and the backscattering coefficient needs to be better clarified. To achieve this purpose, a three-dimensional random model, the Neyman-Scott point process, is proposed to simulate red cell… CONTINUE READING
