Study Notes

Sound Waves

  • Sound is a form of energy generated through vibration, transmitting energy from one location to another.
  • Sound waves are characterized by alternating compressions and rarefactions, requiring a medium (solid, liquid, or gas) to propagate.
  • Compressions signify an increase in pressure or density, while rarefactions occur during the troughs of the sound wave.

Types of Waves

  • Mechanical Waves: defined by the disturbance of a physical medium, examples include ocean waves, sound waves, and seismic waves.
  • Electromagnetic Waves (transverse wave): do not require a medium and can propagate through a vacuum, examples include radio waves, X-rays, and light.

Wave Classification

  • Longitudinal Waves: particle displacement occurs parallel to the wave's direction of energy movement, requires a material for wave travel, and speed depends on the type and state of the medium.
  • Transverse Waves: particle displacement occurs perpendicular to the wave's direction of propagation, velocity is relatively constant at approximately 299,792.456.2 m/s in a vacuum.

Ultrasound Technology

  • 1794: Spallanzani explored sound beyond the audible spectrum.
  • 1912: The Curie brothers identified the piezoelectric effect, foundational for later ultrasound technology.
  • 1917: World War I's naval warfare spurred the advancement of SONAR technology.
  • Late 1940s: Diagnostic uses for ultrasound started to emerge, marking a new era in medical imaging.
  • 1950: Clinical adoption of ultrasound commenced in Glasgow, paving the way for broader medical applications.
  • 1965: Advancements made real-time ultrasound imaging feasible.
  • 1980s: The medical industry began experimenting with ultrasound for medical purposes.
  • 1990s: Institutions worldwide developed pulsed ultrasound technology, leading to 'B Mode' imaging.
  • 1994: Steven Kapral and his team pioneered the use of B-mode ultrasound for brachial plexus blockade procedures.
