Quantitative ultrasound technique is used to evaluate bone-mimicking phantoms; however, these phantoms do not mimic the intermediate stages of cortical bone healing. We propose to use windshield glass as an original material to produce phantoms that mimic characteristics of three different stages of cortical bone healing. This material was processed via a route that included breaking, grinding, compacting, drying, and sintering that occurred in four temperature groups: 625, 645, 657, and 663 ºC. Read More
