Computations are made of the temperature elevation expected at points along the axis of an unfocussed beam of ultrasound in a homogeneous absorbing medium. A simplified model is used in which the intensity is assumed uniform over a cross section. Heat conduction is taken into account, but not convection or perfusion. Results are presented for frequencies(More)
Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophil-predominant inflammatory disease that initially presents as a sterile pustule and may progress to ulcerations. Its root cause is unknown, but the presentation is commonly associated with systemic inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis and haematological abnormalities. On the other(More)
Approximate expressions are discussed which are applicable for acoustic quantities in the vicinity of a plane piston source of ultrasound which radiates into an absorbing medium. A particularly useful approach for nearfield calculations combines an expression valid near the axis with another, given by Pierce [Acoustics, An Introduction to Its Physical(More)
