Improvements of Impediograms Accuracy
Echography is limited by its principle to provide cartographic data concerning the geometry of the media observed. Impediography1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, by the way of more complete treatment of the echographic signal, provides impediograms on which the acoustic impedance characterizing the media is displayed according to observation depth.
