Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe a pulse-echo Beam Tracking technique which can be used for precision estimations of the speed of sound in biological tissues. The theoretical trade offs among the estimation parameters are described, followed by experimental results from phantoms and from tissues in vitro. Finally, a computer simulation is described which demonstrates further improvement in the precision of the technique.
