Computational and experimental study of shock wave interactions with cells

Abstract:

This thesis presents a combined numerical and experimental study on the response of kidney cells to shock waves. The motivation was to develop a mechanistic model of cell deformation in order to improve the clinical use of shock waves, by either enhancing their therapeutic action against target cells or minimising their impact on healthy cells.

An ultra-high speed camera was used to visualise individual cells, embedded in tissue-mimicking gel, in order to measure their deformation w...
