    Tissue harmonic imaging (THI) is a new gray-scale sonographic technique that improves image clarity. Harmonics form within the insonated tissue as a consequence of nonlinear sound propagation. Imaging with endogenously formed harmonics means that the distorting layer of the body wall is traversed only once by the harmonic beam--during echo reception. Both image contrast and lateral resolution are improved in harmonic mode compared with conventional (fundamental mode) sonography. This article summarizes the physics and various implementations of harmonic imaging mode, and reviews the clinical applications that have emerged to date.
