The authors propose a new method of measuring the frequency characteristics of phase velocity along a bone for bending vibration modes to diagnose its mechanical characteristics. By introducing a simple model of a distributed-constant network, the phase velocity is determined for each frequency from the spatial distribution of velocity along a radius bone surface which is measured by the ultrasonic Doppler method.
