The hypothesis that biological tissue comprising a highly ordered collagen matrix would manifest a directional dependence of the physical effects of cross-links that could be quantitatively delineated with ultrasound was addressed. Porcine flexor tendons were subjected to cross-linking treatment, immersed in 10% formalin and subjected to attenuation measurements. The obtained data were analyzed in detail.
