Paper Abstract

It is generally accepted that diagnostic ultrasound as presently employed has no adverse effect on the patient, and that the margin between diagnostic levels and damage thresholds is large. However, the size of this margin is not known due in part to the difficulty of providing a high enough intensity to actually produce a measurable change in tissue with the pulse regimes used in practice. It may be useful to review the types of regime used in the various techniques and the threshold levels currently known.
