Ultrasonic Sound Speed Microscope for Biological Tissue Characterization Driven by Nanosecond Pulse
Ultrasonic microscopy is expected as a powerful tool for biological tissue characterization. Its clinical application to histopathological examination during surgery is being considered. The data are also important to assess the origin of clinical echographic imaging. In clinical point of view, the microscopic observation should be as quick as possible to carry out the surgery in a short period.
