Acoustic microscopy is a novel non-invasive and relatively safe method of imaging internal organs and structures. The presented work involved the application of acoustic microscopy in an attempt to reveal composite topographic changes in the brain due to Alzheimer’s disease. The experiment included mice injected with streptozotocin and successfully identified the hippocampal alterations. Time-frequency signal processing of the resulting images of the acoustic microscope was proposed for future work.
