Abstract

Ultrasonic tissue characterization of biological tissue has been widely treated. There are many interesting results. One of the most important results is the measurement of ultrasonic attenuation in tissue by analyzing the RF signal of the reflected ultrasound, because from the clinical point of view, quantitative values, provided by the method can be used for grading the disease state and for evaluating the efficiency of therapy.
