Effects of ultrasound and infrasound relevant to human health



#1 Oct 17, 2007
Ultrasound has been used successfully for many years for a range of applications including most notably the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of disease and for many industrial applications. The use of high-intensity ultrasound for medical therapeutic purposes is an exciting and rapidly developing area as demonstrated by many ongoing clinical trials. It can however, under some circumstances, present a potential hazard to health and therefore merits further scientific investigation.
Adverse health effects associated with exposure to infrasound and low-frequency noise are less well understood, but concerns exist about the safety of these acoustic waves.

Therefore, the journal of Progress in Biophysics & Molecular Biology has devoted a special issue to this topic, collecting articles from experts in medicine, epidemiology, medical physics, biophysics, biology and engineering. It provides valuable information to professionals responsible for health and safety aspects of the use of ultrasound in both medical and non-medical applications.
