The goal of this project is establish a skull bone data base. We intend to collect matching acoustic
(sound field characterization) and thin-sliced CT data sets of 150 skulls of various conditions (half/full
skulls, full heads). Primary aim of the data base is to provide skull data sets, including their average
and distribution of critical measures (ie. skull thickness/density), to the FUSF community for various
simulation projects. The latter include potential generation of hot spots or standing waves as well as
translational simulations (ie. varying transmit frequencies). Secondary aim is to compare bone density
and bone thickness with acoustic signal absorption in a larger series of human cadaveric skulls and to
test whether this three parameters correlate with each other.
