Beam path artifacts : refraction

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Beam path artifacts  Refraction effects Mirror artifacts Refraction effects Non perpendicular incidence to an interface between tissues with different speeds of sound result in refraction of the transmitted beam. ie the beam changes direction when it passes into the second medium Direction of refraction depends on the relative speeds – Towards the normal if travelling Read more about Beam path artifacts : refraction[…]
