Attenuation Reflection

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Attenuation As an ultrasound beam propagates through a medium it loses energy and therefore undergoes a reduction in amplitude and intensity. This loss of energy is known as attenuation and is determined by the characteristics of the medium It is a major importance that attenuation is frequency dependent. It is a factor which dictates the Read more about Attenuation Reflection[…]
