Basic nonlinear acoustics: an introduction for radiological physicists.

Abstract

Presented is a brief introduction to nonlinear acoustics, a topic of increasing importance in modern diagnostic ultrasound. Specifically treated is shock wave and harmonic production in lossless media. We also present a description of linear attenuation mechanisms in soft tissue and finally nonlinear propagation in soft tissue.
