Time-domain model of the ultrasonic wave propagation in an inhomogeneous anisotropic viscoelastic fluid/solid multilayer medium: application to cortical bone

Abstract : Cortical bone quality is assessed in clinical practice using axial transmission (AT) devices, which allow the measurement of quantitative ultrasonic parameters such as the first arriving signal (FAS) velocity. A two-dimensional finite element time-domain method is derived to model transient wave propagation in a three-layer medium composed of an inhomogeneous transverse isotropic viscoelastic solid layer sandwiched between two dissipative acoustic fluid layers. The model couples acoustic propagation in both dissipative acoustic fluid media with the response of the solid whose constitutive equation is based on the linear theory of viscoelasticity without memory. Bone viscoelasticity is assumed to be heterogeneous and a constant spatial gradient of viscoelastic properties is considered for a value of bone thickness corresponding to a relatively thick bone. Our results highlight the importance of accounting for absorption phenomena occurring in cortical bone for the analysis of ultrasonic measurements with AT device.
