Ultrasound - ultrasonography

Ultrasonotherapy is based on the therapeutic use of longitudinal wave mechanical energy with a frequency above 0.8 MHz, currently practically 1.0-3.0 MHz. Ultrasound is a longitudinal undulation of a material environment with a frequency above 20,000 Hz. This longitudinal undulation is able to pass well through deeply to the soft tissues and to be absorbed differently depending on the absorption coefficient.
