Thus, at a low mechanical index, the tissue signal is mainly linear, and at a high mechanical index, a significant non-linear signal is produced through the tissue. Fundamental Frequency The generation of non-linear signals in the tissue is greater at lower frequencies. Also, when imaging for tissue harmonics, the attenuation, which is dependent on the frequency, is minimized by transmitting at relatively low frequency. Wave Transmission Distance The second harmonic intensity signal depends its distance from the transducer: the signal is stronger from the basal than from the apical part of the left ventricle.
