This resource provides a detailed introduction to the theory of ultrasonics and its many applications. The first four chapters are devoted to the fundamentals of ultrasound propagation and wave theory, essential in understanding how the technique can be applied to the maximum efficiency. This is followed by a section on instrumentation, display methods, and theoretical modeling. The remaining chapters focus on the various applications of ultrasound that include the use in medical diagnostics and therapeutics, such as obstetrics, cardiology, endocrinology, urology, physiotherapy, and surgery as well as industrial applications, such as process engineering, welds, and electromagnetic acoustic transducers (Emats).
