Applications of acoustics and cavitation to noninvasive therapy and drug delivery

Abstract:

Biomedical acoustics is rapidly evolving from a diagnostic modality to a therapeutic tool, and acoustic cavitation is often the common denominator in a wide range of new therapeutic applications. High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves generated outside the body can be used to deposit heat deep within the body. Through a quantitative analysis of heat deposition by ulrasound, it is shown that inertial cavitation can help address some of the major challenges of HIFU therapy by providing ...
