I think we all understand attenuation at the very basic level. Meaning attenuation happens as sound travels through tissue. But things start getting shaky when we are asked to calculate attenuation or we hear the word attenuation coefficient. Listen as Traci Fox [EdD, RT(R), RDMS, RVT] explains this concept in a manner that we can understand and apply. You will finally be able to not only make sense of the physics behind attenuation but you will remember the equation and be able to calculate it during testing. Enjoy!
Attenuation is discussed by Traci Fox [EdD, RT(R), RDMS, RVT] in this segment from the Mint Medical Education Classroom.
