Medical book from C.H.I.P.S.

Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics
Second edition
edited by C. R. Hill

Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics treats the phenomenon of ultrasound in the context of medical and biological applications, systematically discussing fundamental physical principles and concepts.

Rather than focusing on earlier treatments, based largely on the simplifications of geometrical acoustics, Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics examines concepts of wave acoustics, introducing them in the very first chapter.

Practical implications of these concepts are explored, first the generation and nature of acoustic fields, and then their formal descriptions and measurement.

Real tissues attenuate and scatter ultrasound in ways that have interesting relationships to their physical chemistry, and the book includes coverage of these topics.

Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics also includes critical accounts and discussions of the wide variety of diagnostic and investigative applications of ultrasound that are now becoming available in medicine and biology.

Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics encompasses the biophysics of ultrasound, its practical applications to therapeutic and surgical objectives, and its implications in questions of hazards to both patient and operator.
