Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

"However, in view of published work on the development and characterization of tissue-mimicking materials for ultrasound, we feel that this study does not reach the high threshold in degree of advance that we look for in comparable manuscripts that we consider for external peer review." They were really fast with the editorial process (2 days, with one day being on a weekend). Whether they are correct or not in terms of how big an advance is needed is of course debatable.
