I'm copying this message to colleagues that are much smarter than me.
You did not specify which tissue is of interest, fat, liver, muscle and
brain are all somewhat different.
You also did not specify that the material should have the same acoustic
velocity. These might also be important to you.
The most difficult part of your request is that the material should
scatter ultrasound (not "poor echogenic"ity) but not scatter light
I'm anxious to see what my colleagues suggest.
