Ultrasound in Medicine and Technique

Course Description

Define basic parameters of ultrasound field in different mediums (gases, fluids, solids). Define connections between ultrasound field parameters. Piezoceramic effect and methods for different types of ultrasound transreceivers construction (sensors, actuators, transformers). Surgical, therapeutic and diagnostic application of ultrasound in medicine. Appplication of diagnostic ultrasound in industry.
