Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The mechanical impedance of silicone-gel model or chest surface has been measured and the viscoelasticity and effective vibrating radius have been obtained from the impedance. They depend on the distance between the internal block of the silicone-gel/ribs of right chest and the gel surface/skin surface. The 3-D image of internal structure is reconstructed, based on the relation between the distance from the surface and the effective vibrating radius.
