Scanning electron acoustic microscopy (SEAM ) is an operation mode within scanning electron microscopy utilizing the sound or ultrasound generation within the sample due to the impact of a temporarily modulated electron beam current. This technique, which has already shown its large range of applicability in materials research and engineering, is now applied to medical research. Applications presented in this paper are shown for SEAM micrographs of human bone and brain.
