Dependence of the velocity and attenuation of ultrasound in bone on the mineral content.


Measurements of the attenuation and velocity of ultrasound from 0.3 to 0.8 MHz have been performed on a number of bovine cancellous bone samples. The influence of bone mineral content has been isolated by measuring the acoustic properties of the samples at various stages of demineralization resulting from controlled nitric acid attack. The correlation… (More)
