Over the past years, high intensity focused ultrasound therapy has become a promising therapeutic alternative for non-invasive tumor treatment. The basic idea of this interventional approach is to apply focused ultrasound waves to the tumor tissue such that the cells are heated and hence destroyed. Since it is quite difficult to assess the quality of this(More)
When exposed to sufficiently high ultrasound pressures, microbubbles can be generated spontaneously in tissue and undergo inertial cavitation where collapses result in physical effects. These effects range from petechial haemorrhage to complete cellular disruption, termed Histotripsy, depending on ultrasound parameters. This presentation will explore the(More)
