3 . 0 dB/cm/MHz. This approximation describes the expected loss of energy (in decibels) that would occur over the round-trip distance that a beam would travel after being emitted by a given transducer. For example, if a 3-MHz transducer is used to image an object at a depth of 12 cm (24-cm round trip), the returning signal could be attenuated as much as 72 dB (or nearly 4,000-fold). As expected, attenuation is greater in soft tissue compared with blood and is even greater in muscle, lung, and bone.

The ultrasonic beam also intersects a small portion of the right ventricular cavity.
