Nevertheless, ultrasound is particularly functional for obstetrics (fetal imaging) and quantification of blood flow using Doppler measurements. Clinical ultrasound imaging uses frequencies in the range of 1–15 MHz. Unlike X-rays, mechanical sound propagation requires a medium to support transmission. Ultrasound is a sinusoidal pressure wave that causes the molecules to become displaced from their equilibrium position. A one-dimensional representation of this interaction can be used to simplify this description.

Examples of image artifacts include reverberations, acoustic shadows, and speckle. Reverberations are the appearance of equally spaced repeating lines in an image, caused by the transducer being located near a strong reflector. Acoustic shadows occur when the sound field is transmitted and reflected through a highly attenuating object or organ. In the image, the shadow appears as a dark area behind the object of interest. The appearance of light and dark spots in a homogeneous material such as liver is called speckle.

Since Faraday’s law states that voltage is proportional to the time-dependent rate of magnetic flux, a higher B0 field gives a higher precessional frequency and hence a higher signal voltage. Overall, therefore, the measured MRI signal is proportional to the square of the B0 value, providing a major impetus to the ever-increasing static magnetic fields. Absorption of electromagnetic energy by the spin system results in a non-Boltzmann distribution of the population levels, equivalent to a nonequilibrium value of the Mz and Mxy components of magnetization.
