tissue density

tis·sue den·si·ty

/ˈtiSHo͞o ˈdensitē/

Noun

The body has three basic types of tissue density: air-filled (the lungs and portions of the digestive tract), water- filled (muscle, liver, spleen and other solid organs), and solid density tissues (bone). Because of their different mass and density, the tissues are affected differently by the force of energy.
