Because of the potential for certain modalities of clinical ultrasound to cause tissue heating, it was deemed important to survey the literature for reports on temperatures and hyperthermia exposure durations at which biological effects occur in a wide spectrum of organisms. In general the higher the temperature or the longer the hyperthermia exposure, the greater the chance for observing a perturbation to the biological system. Special attention was given to ascertaining temperature exposure… CONTINUE READING
