Examination techniques

10

result of pressure changes in soft tissue causing formation of gas bubbles

stable

transient

MI

Cavitation

11

involves microbubbles already in soft tissue

change diameter with passin gof pressure variations of sound wave

Stable cavitation

12

occurs when the microbubble collapses

produces pressure shockwaves

localized extremely high temps and light emission in clear liquids

potential for significant destructive effects

Transient Cavitation

13

indicator of cavitation

MI

Mechanical Index

14

latin for

within the living

experimentation using a whole living organism

In-vivo

15

in glass

experimentation inside a test tube or lab dish

In-vitro

16
