Time reversal of ultrasonic fields. Il. Experimental results

F. Wu; J. -L. Thomas; M. Fink IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 1992

For pt.I see ibid., vol.39, no.5, p.555-66 (1992). A time-reversal mirror (TRM) is made of an array of transmit-receive transducers. The incident pressure field is sampled, digitized, stored, time-reversed and then re- emitted. This process can be used to focus, through inhomogeneous media, on a reflective target that may behave as an acoustic source after being insonified TRM experiments using ...


A visual computer tool for percutaneous nephrolithotomy preoperative planning

J. -L. Dillenseger; P. Rolland; J. -J. Patard Proceedings of the 25th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37439), 2003

The percutaneous nephrolithotomy is a minimally invasive surgery that is employed to remove larger stones (calculi) in the kidney. This technique places a nephroscope into the kidney through a small tract set after a small incision in the patients back. During the tract positioning, there are risks of kidney bleeding and of injury of other organs near the kidney such ...

1H-4 Use of Acoustic Scattering to Monitor Kidney Stone Fragmentation During Shock Wave Lithotripsy

N. R. Owen; O. A. Sapozhnikov; M. R. Bailey; L. Trusov; L. A. Crum 2006 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, 2006

It is currently difficult to assess whether a kidney stone has fractured during shock wave lithotripsy. Here we report the calculation and measurement of shock wave scattering by stone models in water. Calculations were based on linear elastic theory to find pressure in the fluid and stress in the stone models, and on scattering theory to find radiation from the ...
