Analysis of Transient Shear Wave in Lossy Media

A paper co-authored by Professor Kevin Parker and graduate student Juvenal Ormachea, along with Scott Will (graduate student in the UR Institute of Optics) and Dr. Zaegyoo Hah of Samsung Medison Co. Ltd. titled "Analysis of transient shear wave in lossy media" will appear in the July 2018 issue of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, and can be found here. The work presented in this article extends the analytical treatment of 2-D shear wave propagation in a biomaterial. The approach applies integral theorems relevant to the solution of the generalized Helmholtz equation, and does not depend on a specific rheological model of the tissue's viscoelastic properties.
