The theoretical modeling of ultrasonic propagation in cancellous bone is pertinent to improving the ultrasonic diagnosis of osteoporosis. First, this paper reviews applications of Biot's theory to this problem. Next, a new approach is presented, based on an idealization of cancellous bone as a periodic array of bone-marrow layers. Schoenberg's theory is applied to this model to predict wave properties. Bovine bone samples were tested in vitro using pulses centered at 1 MHz over various angles… CONTINUE READING
