16 March 2006 Tissue imaging utilizing the ultrasonic vibration potential
Author Affiliations +
The ultrasonic vibraton potential refers to the production of a voltage that varies in time when ultrasound passes through a colloidal or ionic solution. The vibration potential can be used as an imaging method for soft tissue by recording its phase, time of arrival, and magnitude relative to the launching of a burst of ultrasound. A theory of the effect can be found from Maxwell's equations. Experimental results demonstrating the imaging method are shown for bodies with simple geometries.
