Abstract

The propagation of sound waves in soft biological tissues (blood, veins, kidney, liver, lung, etc.) is described in this paper by using the Burgers’ equation. The propagation depends on the properties of the tissue at the ultrasonic range of frequencies over 20 kHz, with emphasis on the range 1–10 MHz. The propagation of waves in soft tissues is used for diagnostic and tissue therapy. Utility of the Burgers’ equation to sonification technique is highlighted next to a medical image used to surgical operation.
