Paper Abstract

The microstructure of bone is described and formulas are presented, which give us opportunities to assess the mechanical properties in this range. The scanning acoustic microscope is used to image the mechanical structure and to measure the averaged sound velocity of in vitro samples of human bone. It is possible to assess the attenuation of sound waves. The confocal laser scanning microscope use similar principles. By both microscopes the confocal scanning procedure is applied and an example of specimen is imaged. The pictures are shown and their content is discussed and compared. The information about the object structure shows differences depending on the method used.
