New publication in Physics in Medicine and Biology

We published another paper in PMB in which we propose to use the Independent Scattering Approximation to describe the interaction between ultrasound and the microstructure of cortical bone. The formulation of this direct problem will allow the solution of inverse problems in the future, where the features of cortical porosity will be extracted using ultrasound measurements. This has potential applications to the diagnosis of osteoporosis and response to treatment monitoring.
