Non destructive testing, Medical Imaging

The problems of seismic imaging can be related to non destructive testing, in particular medical imaging. For instance, the rheumatologist are now trying to use the propagation of ultrasounds in the body as a noninvasive way to diagnose osteoporosis. Then, the bones can be regarded as elastodynamic or poroelastic media while the muscles and the marrow can be regarded as acoustic media. Hence the computational codes we use for seismic imaging could be applied to such a problem.
