Treatment planning & targeting during shock wave therapy

Abstract:

Shock wave lithotripsy is a non-invasive procedure by which kidney stones are fragmented. Currently, many shock waves are delivered to the body that do not impact the stone, but do result in tissue trauma, mainly caused by cavitation. This work presents a monitoring system to reduce the number of shock waves delivered to the body, by tracking the target, and to detect cavitation throughout the procedure.

For the first goal, a circular array, housing twenty-two 0.5 MHz transducers th...
