Acoustic shadowing

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Acoustic shadowing It is caused by a high degree of attenuation of the beam at an interface Negligible penetration of sound beyond the highly-attenuating interface means that no echoes can be received from this region, resulting in an “acoustic shadow” The margins of a shadow will be aligned with the direction of the ultrasound beam Read more about Acoustic shadowing[…]
