Characterization of ultrasound propagation through ex-vivo human temporal bone.

Abstract:

Adjuvant therapies that lower the thrombolytic dose or increase its efficacy would represent a significant breakthrough in the treatment of patients with ischemic stroke. The objective of this study was to perform intracranial measurements of the acoustic pressure field generated by 0.12, 1.03 and 2.00-MHz ultrasound transducers to identify optimal ultrasound parameters that would maximize penetration and minimize aberration of the beam. To achieve this goal, in vitro experiments were conduct...
