Provides authoritative treatment of a topic of major current interest to both applied scientists and clinicians
Introduction.- Characterization of high intensity acoustic fields generated by therapeutic transducers.- Acoustic and thermal properties of tissue.- Ultrasound propagation in soft tissue and effects of bones.- Thermal effects of therapeutic ultrasound and corresponding applications.- Cavitation and corresponding applications.- Nonlinear ultrasound waves with shocks and corresponding applications.- Acoustic radiation force and corresponding applications.- Ultrasound and immunology.- Therapeutic ultrasound contrast agents and nanoparticles.- Therapeutic ultrasound transducers and their parameters.- Current devices and applications.- US-based imaging of ultrasound therapies.- MR-based imaging of ultrasound therapies.- Histological and biochemical analysis in therapeutic ultrasound research.- Metrology and dosimetry standards related to therapeutic ultrasound.- Clinical challenges - abdominal applications.- Clinical challenges - brain applications.
This book provides a thorough introduction to the fundamental physics and current state-of-the art in therapeutic ultrasound. Expert chapters present theoretical and experimental methods and review characteristic parameters of transducers, tissue property, acoustic fields, induced bioeffects, and clinical applications. The book also reviews ultrasound and MR-based imaging methods used to monitor treatments; transducer designs, including a description of current devices and applications; and histological and biochemical methods to analyze the therapeutic effect of ultrasound. This key volume serves as a must-have reference for students, scientists, engineers, and clinicians.
