Paper Title:
Simulation of Guided Waves Propagation in Axial Transmission Measurements in Human Radius
  Abstract

This paper is a brief review of the axial transmission measurements methodology. Theoretical background and description of the methodology is presented. Simulations made to verify some of the statements found in the scientific literature about the subject matter are described. Simulation performed were meant to be a basis for specifying parameters of the experimental set up to be used in the future. Three dimensional finite difference code was used to simulate wave propagation in human radius. Two models have been prepared to compare the results. One was an idealized geometry of the diaphysis of human radius and second was a reconstructed anatomical geometry from scans acquired with Computed Tomography (CT). Conclusions about the wave propagation character and feasibility of low frequency measurements in medical diagnostics are discussed.
