Accurate characterization of ultrasound fields generated by diagnostic and therapeutic transducers is critical for patient safety. At high frequencies, spatial variations in the pressure over the surface of the measurement device will produce a different averaged value from that at the intended location. Using a small hydrophone as an idealised point device, this paper seeks to ascertain the spatial-averaging error for a finite-area reference device along the beam axis.
