Abstract Blood clotting is a natural process that can be both beneficial and life-threatening for the human body. It allows the maintenance of hemostasis after vascular injury, but it can also cause deep vein thrombosis and heart stroke. This study aimed better to understand the clotting process from a biomechanical point of view by using an acoustic method. The long-term objective is the staging of the age of clots in deep veins for therapy planning. The transient elastography method using a shear elasticity probe served to evaluate the shear wave velocity ( V S ) and shear wave attenuation (α S ) of porcine whole blood during in vitro clot formation.
