Although no deleterious effects form diagnostic ultrasound have been reported in epidemiologic studies and surveys of widespread clinical usage (Ziskin and Petitti 1988), the conditions for the onset of transient cavitation must be investigated in the total evaluation of potential risks associated with diagnostic ultrasound applications. An extension of the results from the approximate theory developed by Holland and Apfel (1989) is applied in this paper to a population of nuclei to predict the… CONTINUE READING
