Class Information
Number: 600/437
Name: Surgery > Diagnostic testing > Detecting nuclear, electromagnetic, or ultrasonic radiation > Ultrasonic
Description: Methods and apparatus wherein the radiation applied to the body consists of a vibratory acoustic frequency or sound wave produced by a transducer which causes a disturbance in the pressure and density of a fluid, or in the elastic strain in a solid, and has a frequency higher than that detectable by the human ear.
