Ultrasonic attenuation imaging is an imaging modality providing information on the local absorption property of the propagation medium. It can support the clinician in her diagnosis of malignant processes of e.g. the breast by providing a colorcoded overlay over the morphology that is imaged by standard Bmode. We discuss the results obtained by the Method-of-Moments applied to k-wave-simulated ultrasonic B-mode volume data.
