The (http://patft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?patentnumber=10275633) second patent is the "Acoustic imaging system for spatial demodulation of acoustic waves." The technology works similarly with the first patent but is differentiated via its transducer placement.
During acoustic imaging, the spaces between the cracks helped to reflect ultrasound and create the anomaly seen in Figure 1.
