Focal sizes and their standards …
Focal size, impact zone, -6dB zone, 5 megapascal (MPa) zone, central penetration depth, maximum/distal penetration depth, energy flow density … the terms are confusing and are often used randomly in advertising. It is important to be aware that standards exist to describe focal zones, as discussed in the simplified explanations given below:
The maximum applied energy flux density, a local variable for the acoustic pressure signal measured at the central focal point, is an acoustic field parameter which is often used in clinical practice and scientific studies. In addition to giving information about pressure conditions in the focal area, this figure also provides information about the energy acting in the focal area of the acoustic field. The unit of measurement for energy flux density is millijoule per square millimeter (mJ/mm²).
