Zusammenfassung

Die Diskussion um die Möglichkeit schädigender Nebenwirkungen bei der Anwendung diagnostischen Ultraschalls ist so alt wie die USDiagnostik selbst. Bereits im Jahre 1964 legte Sunden ausgedehnte Versuche zu diesem Thema vor. Seitdem ist eine kaum noch zu übersehende Zahl von Untersuchungen über Ultraschallbioeffekte und Schädigungsmöglichkeiten publiziert worden. Aufgrund dieser Experimente wird heute allgemein angenommen, daß diagnostischer Ultraschall im Gegensatz zu bildgebenden Verfahren mit ionisierenden Strahlen mit keinem gesundheitlichen Risiko für Patient oder Anwender verbunden ist.
