Effect of Contralateral Carotid Artery Stenosis on Carotid Ultrasound Velocity Measurements
A potential source of error in using ultrasound peak systolic velocity (PSV) measurements is that the redistribution of blood flow due to severe stenosis in a contralateral carotid artery may lead to artificially elevated values.

Moths use acoustic camouflaging fur to evade bats
Scientists in the UK have discovered that the fur of some moths can absorb up to 85% of incoming ultrasound. According to the researchers, this fur acts as a “stealth coating” providing the moths with a passive, acoustic camouflage that helps hide them from the ultrasonic clicks of hunting bats.
