J Acoust Soc Am 119:1432-40. 2006..Recommendations are presented to guide the choice of optical components and to provide practical insight into the routine usage of the FOPH device...
- Spatial variability in acoustic backscatter as an indicator of tissue homogenate production in pulsed cavitational ultrasound therapyJessica E Parsons
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
IEEE Trans Ultrason Ferroelectr Freq Control 54:576-90. 2007..The prevalence of backscatter spatial variability was observed to scale with the amount of homogenate produced for various PRFs and acoustic intensities...
- Refining histotripsy: defining the parameter space for the creation of nonthermal lesions with high intensity, pulsed focused ultrasound of the in vitro kidneyKathleen Kieran
Department of Urology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109, USA
J Urol 178:672-6. 2007..However, the relative contributions of thermal and cavitational effects are poorly defined. We characterized the ultrasound parameters within which tissue ablation occurs by cavitational mechanisms without significant thermal effect...
