This paper presents the experimental results on the acoustic anisotropy in bovine cancellous bone. The propagation of both fast and slow longitudinal waves in bovine cancellous bone was experimentally examined in relation to the structural anisotropy, or the trabecular arrangement. Propagation speeds of the fast and slow waves were measured as a function of the propagation angle to the trabecular alignment, and theoretically estimated by use of Biot’s theory for an isotropic medium.
