Ultrasound waves due to their inherent small wavelength can be used in diagnosis or evaluation of tissue.Ultrasound simulations can be useful to investigate and analyzedifferent properties at different sites especially when there is novolumetric data available. In the proposed paper, simulation ofultrasound in a 2-D bone model and hardware implementationhas been presented. Due to complex structures of bone, a simplelinear model consisting of both cortical and cancellous bone hasbeen proposed. In the simulation, a broadband emitter withcenter frequency of 1 Megahertz is used along with an array ofreceivers to capture the signal. An attempt has been made tocalculate bone density parameters in-vivo for human feet, andfinally display the computed parameters onto a LCD usingArduino Uno Board. An algorithm involving fourier transformswas used to calculate Broadband Ultrasound Attenuation (BUA)and Speed of Sound (SoS) in Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB).
