What has changed is that the complexity of the systems has exploded. Now ultrasound scanners are over 4000 times as complex as in 1979. But, that era has come to an end. The first companies to introduce palm size scanners have reverted to mounting them on standard size carts, not because small size is impossible, but because the customers appear to want ultrasound scanners that look large. Now, all the major manufacturers offer palm size ultrasound scanners as an alternative to the large systems.

If a compression or expansion is applied to the transducer from outside, a Figure 3–3. Fundamental frequency image and harmonic frequency image of liver. The left image was formed with the fundamental frequency echo and the right image was formed with the second harmonic of the transmitted frequency. The echo strengths of the harmonic are much lower than the echo strengths of the fundamental. Of course, attenuation of the echoes from greater depth is more severe at the second harmonic frequency.

In the simplest view, the ultrasound beam pattern is a straight line that extends into tissue along the axis of the ultrasound transducer. If the ultrasound transducer is a disk, the beam pattern is a line through the center of the disk perpendicular to the surface. In a slightly more complex view (Figure 3–7), the ultrasound beam pattern is a cylinder extending from the face of the transducer. Because ultrasound is a wave, the shape of the ultrasound beam pattern includes diffraction effects that alter the shape of the beam pattern near the transducer (Fresnel zone), far from the transducer (Fraunhoffer zone), and at the boundary between these regions (Transition zone).
