Effects of ultrasound (US), salicylic acid (SA) and their combined use on the growth and secondary metabolite production of suspension-cultured Corylus avellana cells were investigated. The cultures were treated with US (40 kHz) for short periods of time (2, 3, 5 and 10 min) and SA (25 and 50 mg L(-1)). Results showed that although phenolic content of the(More)
Doppler ultrasound technique is now recognized as the best noninvasive screening test for carotid artery stenosis. Ultrasound does not calculate directly the degree of arterial narrowing, but relies on extrapolating the changes in blood flow parameters to an anatomical stenosis. This paper deals with the estimation of the stiffness indices of mild and(More)
INTRODUCTION Elastic modulus estimation may be an important clinical criterion, as it seems to affect such eye parameters as intraocular pressure, ocular pulsation, blood flow, effect of topical medications, and post-refractive surgery complications. The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in elasticity in the ocular axial length, posterior(More)
In order to quantify the effects of exposure parameters under therapeutic conditions such as sonodynamic therapy, it is necessary initially to evaluate the inertial cavitation activity in vitro. In this study, the dependence of cavitation activity induced by the low-level dual-frequency ultrasound irradiation on exposure parameters has been studied.(More)
Non-invasive quantitative analysis of the heart walls thickness is a fundamental step in diagnosis and discrimination of heart disease. Thickness measurements in 2D echocardiographic images have many applications in research and clinic for assessing of wall stress, wall thickening and viability parameters. Regarding to interventricular septum wall thickness(More)
In the present study, developing a new non-invasive method independent from blood flow, we estimated and compared the total axial stress of the common carotid artery wall in healthy and atherosclerotic subjects. Consecutive ultrasonic images of the common carotid artery of 48 male subjects including healthy, with less and more than 50% stenosis in carotid(More)
Evaluation of inertial cavitation is a significant problem where this mechanism of action is responsible for therapeutic applications such as drug delivery. It has shown that using multiple frequencies one is able to enhance and control induced cavitation. In this study, we used different sonication frequencies as 28 kHz, 130 kHz, 1 MHz, 3 MHz and their(More)
Acoustic inertia cavitation is the primary mechanism underlying sonochemical reactions and has potential for use in tumor treatment. In in vitro experiments that were performed previously and are thus not included in this paper, we found that the ultrasonically-induced chemical reactions are greatly accelerated when ultrasound is simultaneously applied at(More)
To overcome the side effects caused by systemic administration of doxorubicin, nanosized polymeric micelles were used in combination with dual frequency ultrasonic irradiation. These micelles release the drug due to acoustic cavitation, which is enhanced in dual frequency ultrasonic fields. To form the drug-loaded micelles, Pluronic P-105 copolymer was(More)
Currently several therapeutic applications of ultrasound in cancer treatment are under progress which uses cavitation phenomena to deliver their effects. There are several methods to evaluate cavitation activity such as chemical dosimetry and measurement of subharmonic signals. In this study, the cavitation activity induced by the ultrasound irradiation on(More)
