BACKGROUND The main aim was to study the effects of ultrasound (US) alone, in combination with an US contrast agent (UCA), tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), or the combination of both upon blood clots. METHODS In order to learn about sonothrombolysis with diagnostic duplex US, a simplified in vitro test model, using human whole blood clots in Petri(More)
BACKGROUND The primary goal of this study was to investigate the relationship between increasing output power levels and clot fragmentation during high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)-induced thrombolysis. METHODS A HIFU headsystem, designed for brain applications in humans, was used for this project. A human calvarium was mounted inside the(More)
