Abstract
Ultrasonic waves are sonic vibrations of frequencies above 16 to 20 KHz which is the upper limit of audibility for the human ear. Above 15 MHz, ultrasonic waves are referred to as microwave ultrasound because at these high frequencies ultrasound tends to act like electromagnetic radiation even though particle vibration is still being produced. Due to practical limitations set by ultrasonic generators the upper limit of ultrasonic frequencies is around 500 MHz. The frequencies of biological interest are in the range of a few KHz to a few MHz.
