Paper Abstract

The ultrasonic vibration potential refers to the generation of a potential when ultrasound traverses a colloidal or ionic solution. The vibration potential can be used for imaging of tissue by sending a burst of ultrasound into a body and recording the vibration potential on the surface of the body with a pair of electrodes attached to a preamplifier and signal processing electronics. The theory of imaging in one-dimension is based on an integral of the ultrasound burst over the colloid distribution in space. A complete theory gives the current from the vibration potential as an integral of the product of the pressure with the component of the gradient of the colloid distribution in space in the direction of propagation of the ultrasound.
