What is Ultrasound Energy?

Ultrasound is physically just like sound but at a pitch that’s too high for humans to hear. All frequencies of sound are pressure waves that vibrate materials in their environment like air, water, or tissue by creating intermittent high and low pressure zones. Ultrasound has been safely used in medicine for almost 100 years, and is one of the most commonly used technologies in medicine. Ultrasound has successfully been used even longer outside of medicine in imaging, cleaning, and cosmetics.
