Tissue harmonics

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Tissue harmonics A sinusoidal wave propagating into the patient has troughs of rarefaction and peaks of compression. The speed of travel of a sound wave is affected by the density of the medium. The compressions in a wave are denser than the rarefactions for a fraction of a second. This causes the peak (compressions) to Read more about Tissue harmonics[…]
