Sample text

These reflected echoes are called specular echoes. When an interface between two tissues with different acoustical impedances is reached, a portion of the sound is reflected back to the transducer. The rest continues on through the tissues. The greater the difference in acoustical impedance the greater the degree of reflection. For the same reason, if two boundaries have little or no acoustical mismatch they will not be identified as two different tissues. Therefore interfaces between muscle and fluid, as in the heart, will reflect sound at different intensities while the cells within the homogeneous muscle itself will reflect sound with similar strengths.

The reflected sound waves are analyzed, and an image is generated on a monitor. Sending out many sound waves side by side will produce an image with depth and width. 1). When the sound waves are continuously and rapidly sent out in sequence, many two-dimensional images can be generated per minute, and a moving image of the heart is made called real-time or B-mode ultrasound. 2). The structures associated with that one line through the heart keep scrolling on the screen as the heart continues to contract and relax.

These crystals, often called elements, are also able to receive sound and convert it back into electrical energy. The thickness of the crystal dictates the basic operating frequency of the transducer. Wavelength will be one-half of the element thickness so decreased crystal thickness produces shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies. Pulse Repetition Frequency Transducers used in pulsed-echo applications do not transmit sound continuously. They send sound waves out in short bursts and receive sound the remainder of the time.
