Statistical case study of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Dept. of Comput. of Sci., King Saud Univ., Buraidah, Saudi Arabia', u'full_name': u'H. M. Amasha'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'full_name': u'B. M. Al-Eideh'}] 2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, None

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is one of the recent, most common ways of treating patients with urinary (renal and ureteric) stones through non-invasive destruction of stones. Many reports and studies have shown its safety and success. It offers the patient less pain, much less discomfort and less severe complications usually associated with open surgery procedures. This study does not ...

Medical technology and advocacy in Washington

A historical perspective on advocacy groups that influence US government actions is presented. The targets of these groups in the executive branch, legislative branch, and outside agencies and advisory groups are discussed. These targets include the Department of Health and Human Services, which includes the Health Care Financing Administration and the Public Health Service; the Office of the Secretary, which ...

Ultrasonic classification of gallstones

Lau'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'Washington Univ., Seattle, WA, USA', u'full_name': u'F. K. Forster'}, {u'author_order': 3, u'affiliation': u'Washington Univ., Seattle, WA, USA', u'full_name': u'R. L. Baron'}] Proceedings., IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium,, None

The chemical composition of gallstones varies significantly, and the choice between nonsurgical treatment by dissolution and/or shock-wave lithotripsy depends on those properties. Acoustic imaging and measurements of acoustic attenuation using gated backscatter signals selected from the interior of gallstones between 4 and 6 mm in size have been accomplished with a high- frequency (30-MHz) ultrasonic system. Preliminary results indicate that ...

Design of an optimized high-power ultrasonic transducer

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Dept. de Engenharia Biomedica, Univ. Estadual do Campinas, Brazil', u'full_name': u'S. S. Muhlen'}] IEEE Symposium on Ultrasonics, None

The design of an optimized ultrasonic transducer for renal lithotripsy is discussed. The device consists of a concentrator (horn) associated with piezoelectric (PZT) ceramic rings to obtain maximum power transfer to the kidney stones. The transducer works at 31 kHz, and the vibratory amplitude measured on the application tip is 0.12 mm. The theoretical modeling of the horn is discussed, ...
