An ultrasonic vibration potential is generated when an acoustic wave propagates in an ionic or colloidal suspension. Measurement of the potential as an ultrasonic wave propagates in a body offers the possibility of a method of imaging. The resolution of the method ultimately is limited by the wavelength of the ultrasound; the contrast of the technique will depend on inertial quantities and the relative zeta potentials of the irradiated regions. The prospects for tissue imaging using the ultrasonic vibration potential are discussed.
