Microscopic observation of glass bead movement in soft tissue-mimicking phantom under ultrasound PW mode scanning


Previous studies have demonstrated that stones and calcification in soft tissue show special enhancement in response to color flow (CF) or pulse Doppler (PW) mode ultrasound scan. This phenomenon is known as the “twinkling sign (TS)”. The authors conducted an in vitro experiment to investigate the mechanism of TS occurrence by observing a glass bead in a… (More)
