Medical imaging using sound waves. Ultrasonic waves, sound waves with a frequency above 20 kHz, are used for a number of different applications. These range from non-destructive testing of materials in engineering and materials science, to underwater sonar for the detection of obstacles or objects, to sonography where we can produce images of the internal organs in a patient’s body. There are also other high-power ultrasonic uses such as welding, cleaning, cutting materials and even making incisions during surgery.
