    Tissue-mimicking bladder wall phantoms for evaluating acoustic radiation force-optical coherence elastography systems
    Purpose: Acoustic radiation force–optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) systems are novel imaging systems that have the potential to simultaneously quantify and characterize the optical and mechanical properties of in vivo tissues. This article presents the construction of bladder wall phantoms for use in ARF-OCE systems. Mechanical, acoustic, and optical properties are reported and compared to published values for the urinary bladder. Methods: The phantom consisted of 0.2000±0.0089 and 6.0000±0.2830 µm polystyrene microspheres (Polysciences Inc., Warrington, PA, Catalog Nos. 07304 and 07312), 7.5±1.5 µm copolymer microspheres composed of acrylonitrile and vinylidene chloride ...
