Jul 27 2017Side Effects Despite its medicinal and therapeutic benefits there are some side effects to be aware of with ultrasonic therapy Indeed the general practice of ultrasound therapy is regarded as safe and effective but there have been some minor cases of physical pain due to cavitation 1 Introduction As a new non-heat treatment technology ultrasound has been widely studied and applied because of its large amount of advantages (e g green pollution-free and high efficiency) According to its frequency and intensity ultrasound can be roughly divided into two categories: high frequency low intensity ultrasound and low frequency high intensity ultrasound

Ultrasound in Wound Healing

Therapeutic ultrasound is utilized by physical therapists to deliver a high frequency mechanical vibration to facilitate healing at a cellular level Therapeutic ultrasound is often used by physiotherapists to reduce pain increase circulation and increase mobility of soft tissues Additionally the application of ultrasound can be helpful in the reduction of inflammation reducing pain and

Ultrasonics vibrations of frequencies greater than the upper limit of the audible range for humans—that is greater than about 20 kilohertz The term sonic is applied to ultrasound waves of very high amplitudes Hypersound sometimes called praetersound or microsound is sound waves of frequencies greater than 10 13 hertz At such high frequencies it is very difficult for a sound wave to

Ultrasound waves have frequencies that exceed the upper limit for audible human hearing i e greater than 20 kHz Medical ultrasound devices use sound waves in the range of 1–20 MHz Proper selection of transducer frequency is an important concept for providing optimal image resolution in diagnostic and procedural Ultrasound

Jul 01 2001Ultrasound is widely used in many countries including Canada 1 Australia 2– 4 Denmark 5 Finland 6 New Zealand 7 Switzerland 8 the United Kingdom 9 10 and the United States 11 Physical therapists have given many reasons for using ultrasound such as for the "physiological effects" or because of beliefs in "clinical results" 4

New ultrasound treatment kills off cancer cells

The team tested different ultrasound frequencies (ranging from 300 000 to 650 000 hertz) They also tested different pulse durations (from 2 to 40 milliseconds) One minute of 500 000 hertz ultrasound delivered in 20-millisecond bursts killed nearly every cancer cell It didn't hurt the blood cells

An ultrasound transducer converts electrical energy into mechanical (sound) energy and back again based on the piezoelectric effect It is the hand-held part of the ultrasound machine that is responsible for the production and detection of ultrasound waves It consists of five main components:

mechanical and biological effects induced by different sonication condition submitting U937 cells at various sweep frequencies and at fixed frequencies with different burst rate The cells were stressed by pulse wave ultrasound with increasing and decreasing frequency between 400 and 620 KHz at 0 5 Hz 10 Hz 50 Hz burst rate and 50 % duty

the different sources that produce this phenomenon Physiological effects of low frequencies are shown as well as some of the uses that mankind is giving to this lower part of the frequency spectrum Limitations to exposure are presented briefly in order to understand that this

The frequency range or bandwidth 1 2 6 of the transducer will determine whether it can support B‐mode imaging at different center frequencies and also operate in Doppler harmonic and color flow modes With Doppler‐based imaging modes we often need to operate with lower frequencies than the B‐mode frequency to minimize aliasing

Ultrasound is a radiological technique that involves sending soundwaves with very high frequencies (∼ 2–20 MHz for diagnostic imaging) through the body and receiving their echoes to visualize internal structures and organs The soundwaves are produced by piezoelectric transducers encased in a probe that also detects the echoes The denser a material is the stronger the echo and

The potential for ultrasound to produce biologic effects was first reported in 1917 Langevin demonstrated that fish in a small tank died when exposed to ultrasound 5 Subsequent studies confirmed that ultrasound also produces damage in other species 6 The thermal effects of ultrasound were used in the 1940s to cauterize tissue during surgery and to destroy cancerous cells in situ 7 8 Fry et

Effects of Ultrasound Technique on the Composition of

The objective of the experiment was to investigate the stability of the composition of selected essential oils in the model systems containing methanol and hexane solutions which were treated with ultrasound Solutions of the oils with a concentration of 90 mg/ml were subjected to the effect of ultrasounds with a frequency of 20 kHz and an output power of 200#x2009 W for periods of 2#x2009

The use of ultrasound as a way to inactivate and/or activate enzymes has been widely studied at low frequencies (20–40 kHz) however little research on the effect of high frequencies has been reported Thus the effect of high and low frequency ultrasound on commercial horseradish peroxidase with a concentration of 0 005 mg mL−1 is described

The ultrasound unit and transducer creates sound waves that penetrate tissues of the body and causes vibrations of the molecules within the tissues receiving the sound waves Therapist can manipulate frequency duty cycle dosage treatment duration and treatment area to achieve different outcomes such as non-thermal and thermal ultrasound

This study aimed to observe the effects of ultrasound waves at different frequencies on abdominal fat tissue External ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (XUAL) via both histologic and immunohistochemic examinations was used to assess adipose tissue alterations including cells and collagenic fibers

ultrasound waves between 6 kHz to 40 kHz can induce colony formation of Bacillus carbophilus grown on non-permissive media In this paper the effect of audible sound of certain frequencies to E coli is investigated as a compliment to the application of ultrasound The effect is assessed based on the comparison in their cell number

Low (28 kHz) and high (200 kHz) frequency sonication combined with hot water treatments at 45 and 75 C were investigated to assess the effects of different ultrasound frequencies and water temperatures on the extraction of bitumen from oil sand A mechanical stirrer was also used to compare the efficiency of separation Bitumen extraction tests were performed under argon air and nitrogen

The effect of power ultrasound treatment on bacterial viability was a combination of declumping and inactivation but the overall effect is dependent on the frequency employed Plate count methods have shown that exposure of E coli and Kl pneumonia suspensions to ultrasound in the lower frequency range (20–40 kHz) results in an immediate and
