(a) -weighted, (b) -weighted, (c) ADC, and (d) GRE-EPI magnitude images obtained with the US imaging transducer in contact with a cryogel sample in the water tank, with acoustic absorber beneath. The white arrows in (c) indicate ghosting artefacts. The curved structure at the bottom of the images is an acoustic absorber which was placed in the bottom of the water bottle to minimise reflections when acquiring US data. (a), (b), and (d) show a field of view (FOV) measuring  cm and (c)  cm.
