1. A 8 MHZ beam of Ultrasound travels from soft tissue into fat. Calculate the wavelength
in each medium and percentage wavelength change.For soft tissue speed of sound is 1540
m/s and for fat it is 1450 m/s.
2. Calculate the remaining intensity of 100mW U/S pulse that lose 40 dB while travelling
through tissue.
3. Calculate the percentage of U/S beam is transmitted from fat to muscle.acoustic
impedance for muscle =1.71X106 ,acoustic impedance for fat=1.34X106
4. Calculate the approximate intensity for a 5 MHZ Ultrasound wave travelling through
round trip to a depth of 4 cm in liver and reflected from an encapsulated air
pocket(Assume 100% reflection).using 0.5 db per cm for a 5 MHZ beam attenuation
coefficient is 25 db per cm.
5. A 1 MHz US wave with initial intensity 100 mW/cm2 (RMS) is travelling through fat.
(We shall assume initially that we have a semi-infinite slab so that there is no reflected
component.) Calculate: (a) the initial peak pressure, (b) the initial maximum velocity of
oscillation of the particles, (c) the initial maximum displacement. Now suppose that, the
beam hits a barrier with muscle 3cm from the starting point. Calculate: (d) the intensity of
the reflected beam. The tissue properties are: fat = 940 kg/m3, c = 1480 m/s,
(amplitude) = 0.07 cm-1; muscle = 1070 kg/m3, c = 1566 m/s, (amplitude) = 0.15
