Multilayer analysis: quantitative scanning acoustic microscopy for tissue characterization at a microscopic scale

An in vitro acoustic microscopy method for the quantitative characterization of biological hard tissues at a microscopic scale is described. At a frequency of 900 MHz, the acoustic impedance is measured as a tissue parameter, which is closely related to its elastomechanical properties. Contrast influences caused by defocus, edges, and surface inclinations… CONTINUE READING
