Rat embryos in utero at 10 days of gestation (gd) were exposed to the intensity of 2.5 W/cm2 (SATA) of 1 MHz continuous-wave ultrasound for 5 min. The right uterine horn was exteriorized, exposed to the ultrasound beam, and then reinserted into the abdominal cavity. Embryos from the unexposed left uterine horn served as controls. The cerebral hemispheres of(More)

Rat embryos at 10 days of gestation were exposed to 43 degrees C for 8 minutes by submerging the exteriorized right uterine horn in heated saline solution and then reinserting the uterine horn into the abdominal cavity. At 15 days, the fetuses were removed, and cells from the cerebral hemispheres were dissociated and grown as primary cultures. Embryos from(More)

Six-day-old rat neonates were exposed to 2.25 MHz continuous wave (CW) ultrasound for 5 min at an intensity of 2.5 W/cm2 (SATA). The temperatures on the head surface and in the mouth were measured. There was a higher average temperature elevation in the mouth (9 degrees C) than on the head surface (7 degrees C). Survival differs between control and exposed(More)
