Abstract

The increasing interest in the investigation of the acoustic characteristics of biological tissues which has occurred in the past decade is caused by the progress made in ultrasonic imaging in medical diagnostics. The possibility of obtaining ultrasonic images of biological substances is based on the acoustic heterogeneity of these structures. That is why the investigation of the acoustic topography of tissue, i.e. the spatial distribution of velocities and attenuation coefficients of ultrasonic waves and the changes in the acoustic topography during functional and parhological processes is of special importance.
