Ultrasound in Medical Diagnosis

In 1928 the Soviet physicist S. Y. Sokolov suggested that ultrasound could be used to reveal discontinuities in metals, for example, a flaw in a welded seam. It was 1940 before the physicist Floyd A. Firestone, at the University of Michigan, developed and patented what he called a supersonic reflectoscope. This work was done with funds from General Motors and Sperry Rand. The device was actually produced in 1940 and patented in 1942, but it was not publicized until 1944; papers describing it appeared after the war, when it became apparent that Desch and his colleagues in great Britain had independently developed similar equipment (Firestone 1945).

(ed note: The first industrial Ultrasonic Flaw Detector was invented by the physicist Floyd A. Firestone and his US-Patent 2 280 226 "Flaw Detecting Device and Measuring Instrument" from 21st. April 1942.)
