Abstract

Use of ultrasound waves in the medical diagnostic procedures is discussed. Ultrasound diagnostics avails itself of the analysis of the reflected echoes from bodily tissues when irradiated with mechanical waves of appropriate frequency. Different physical parameters relative to an ultrasound wave, such as the amplitude, phase or frequency can be analyzed. Different possible analyses allow to obtain different information relative to the tissues being studied.
