An Investigation Into The Use Of Cavitation For The Optimisation Of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (Hifu) Treatments

James Ross McLaughlan, G R Ter Haar, I Rivens
2008 Zenodo  
There is, however, a lack of understanding of HIFU generated cavitation activity in tissue.  ...  Passive and active cavitation detection techniques have been combined to give a system for use in HIFU fields.  ...  Another hypothesis investigated was that non-linear propagation of the HIFU field generated superharmonics that were absorbed more readily in the tissue.  ...

Application of acoustic droplet vaporization in ultrasound therapy

Yufeng Zhou
2015 Journal of Therapeutic Ultrasound  
In an acoustic field, liquefied gas nanoparticles may be able to change the state and become the gas form in a few cycles of exposure without significant heating effects.  ...  Microbubbles have been used widely both in the ultrasonic diagnosis to enhance the contrast of vasculature and in ultrasound therapy to increase the bioeffects induced by bubble cavitation.  ...  HIFU ablation Because of the much lower acoustic impedance of gaseous bubbles in comparison to the surrounding soft tissue, transformation of ultrasonic pressure waves to thermal energy is much more efficient  ...
