Shock wave pulse pressure after penetration of kidney tissue

L. Filipczynski; J. Etienne; T. Kujawska IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 1994

Lithotripter generated compressional peak pressure (p/sup +/) was measured after penetrating tissue samples 0.5, 1, 2.5, and 4 cm thick. The samples were taken from fresh pig kidneys and insonated by shock wave pulses with positive peak pressures varying from 14 to 72 MPa. The measurement results allow one to draw some qualitative conclusions concerning the attenuation process in the ...


Non-invasive comminution of renal calculi using pulsed cavitational ultrasound therapy - histotripsy

Alexander Duryea; Adam Maxwell; William Roberts; Zhen Xu; Timothy Hall; Charles Cain 2009 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium, 2009

The current clinically available procedure for non-invasively treating renal calculi, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), suffers from the fact that it can result in incomplete fractionation of the stone and confer damage to both renal and extra-renal tissues. We assessed the feasibility of using histotripsy to non-invasively erode kidney stones to fine debris and performed a comparison study with a ...


Ultrasonic classification of gallstones

T. H. Lau; F. K. Forster; R. L. Baron Proceedings., IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium,, 1989

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 ...


Selective focusing in multiple-target media: the transfer matrix method

1993 Proceedings IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, 1993

The iterative time reversal mirror provides an elegant way of focusing in a multiple-target media on the most reflective one. This paper presents a method to focus on the other targets. This method is derived from the theoretical study of the iterative time reversal process. It relies on both the definition of transfer matrix K of the system (array of ...


Linear hydrophone arrays for measurement of shock wave lithotripter acoustic fields

Jeffrey A. Ketterling; Jonathan M. Kracht; Robin O. Cleveland 2009 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium, 2009

Lithotripter acoustic field characterization is based on single-element hydrophone measurements even though many clinical lithotripters do not have highly repeatable sound fields. Here, linear hydrophone arrays composed of 20 elements, each measuring 0.5 by 0.5 mm and spaced 1.25 mm center to center, are described and characterized. The arrays were fabricated by bonding a 9 ¿m piezopolymer film to a ...
