Abstract

In 1984 Stella et al. reported that each of 10 patients exposed to therapeutic ultrasound had a statistically significant increase in sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) at mid- and end of therapy; there was a wide range of clinical symptoms (e.g., elbow epicondylitis to knee arthrosis) in this set of patients. In the present study, a set of 4 patients each with some diagnosis recommending therapeutic ultrasound was similarly tested for SCE induction; an additional set of 4 healthy persons underwent sham-therapeutic ultrasound exposures. For both sets of subjects (patients, nonpatients) there was no increase in the frequency of SCEs.
