Prior to clinical application of novel techniques such as vascular elastography and photo acoustic imaging, validation studies are of great importance. Gelatin, agar and polyvinyl-alcohol (PVA) phantoms are commonly used. However, more realistic phantoms are needed with complex geometry and different constituents with known properties. For this purpose, a… CONTINUE READING
