Stress waves in model kidney stones exposed to burst wave lithotripsy

Adam Maxwell; Brian MacConaghy; Michael Bailey; Oleg Sapozhnikov 2017 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), 2017

Burst wave lithotripsy (BWL) is an experimental method to noninvasively fragment urinary calculi using low-frequency focused bursts of ultrasound. To optimize many of the acoustic parameters for this technology, it is necessary to understand the physical interactions between ultrasound bursts and stones. In this study, the interaction of elastic waves with model stones was simulated and experimentally visualized by photoelastography, ...


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 ...

Numerical Simulation of Electro-Hydraulic EWSL with Single-Pulse and Dual-Pulse

Xiaoyan Zhang; Jingqiu Chen; Yongxiang Zhang; Chunxia Xia 2011 5th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, 2011

The pressure field and the compare of the single-pulse and dual-pulse inside an electro-hydraulic Dornier HM3 lithotripter were studied. The 2D axisymmetric Euler equations, based on the unstructured grid CE / SE numerical scheme, were used. At the same time, water was used as the pressure transmission medium and the shock wave focusing process were simplified the process of water ...


Measurement of coronary artery blockages using moderate frequency pressure

P. S. Hamilton; M. G. Curley Proceedings of 18th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1996

They authors have investigated the use of compliance waves to assess blockages in coronary arteries. They used a catheter based lithotripter to generate compliance waves in ex vivo coronary arteries of a calf heart and recorded the pressure waves at various locations along the descending branch of the Left Coronary Artery (LCA). At physiologically realistic pressures, the authors measured the ...
