To enhance the likelihood of cavitation, pregnant mice were subjected to hyperbaric conditions and quickly returned to atmospheric pressure. Following this treatment, they were exposed to spatial average, pulse average intensities of 100 W/cm2 (2.2-MHz, 20-μs pulses with a duty cycle of 1 1000 or a temporal average spatial average intensity of 0.1 W/cm2). Fetal weights, deaths and malformations were scored. No statistically significant effects were observed in the offspring.
