Application of Ultrasound Time-Domain Correlation to the Ageing of Porcine Muscle for the first Twenty-Four Hours Post Mortem
The Ultrasound Time-Domain Correlation (UTDC) technique has been developed at the Bioacoustics Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois in order to estimate blood flow velocity in vessels . This technique compares different ultrasound echoes via digital correlation to produce a normalized correlation coefficient. The correlation coefficient has a value between zero and one and indicates the similarity between echoes.
