High Frequency Acoustic Properties of Tumor Tissue

  • Yoshifumi Saijo

Ultrasonic tissue characterization of tumor tissue is important for two reasons; first that the acoustic parameters provide the physical mechanical properties not determinable by for example, optical microscopy, and second that such data provides information for understanding echographic imaging.
