Interaction Mechanisms: Non-Thermal, Non-Cavitational Effects
The way in which ultrasound interacts with tissue is conventionally divided into three classes of mechanisms - thermal, cavitational, and non-thermal, non-cavitational. Heating and cavitation are covered elsewhere in this volume (see chapters by W.L. Nyborg and E. Carstensen in this volume).
