BME 251/451 - Biomedical Ultrasound
Spring Semester, 4 Cr.
Course Description: This course provides analyses of the physical bases for the use of high-frequency sound in medicine (diagnosis, therapy and surgery) and biology. Topics include acoustic properties of tissues, sound propagation (linear and nonlinear) in tissues, interactions of ultrasound with gas bodies (acoustic cavitation and contrast agents), thermal and non-thermal biological effects of ultrasound, ultrasonography, dosimetry, and lithotripsy.
