Controlled microchannelling in dense collagen scaffolds by soluble phosphate glass fibers.
A problem with tissue engineering scaffolds is maintaining seeded cell viability and function due to limitations of oxygen and nutrient transfer. An approach to maintain suitable oxygenExpand

Preparation of microbubble suspensions by co-axial electrohydrodynamic atomization.
In this paper we report a novel method, based on co-axial electrohydrodynamic jetting, for the preparation of microbubble suspensions containing bubbles <10 microm in size and having a narrow sizeExpand

The natural frequencies of microbubble oscillation in elastic vessels.
A theoretical model for the dynamics of a bubble in an elastic blood vessel is applied to study numerically the effect of confinement on the free oscillations of a bubble. The vessel wallExpand

A comparison of methods for focusing the field of a HIFU array transducer through human ribs.
A forward model, which predicts the scattering by human ribs of a multi-element high-intensity focused ultrasound transducer, was used to investigate the efficacy of a range of focusing approachesExpand

Modelling of the acoustic field of a multi-element HIFU array scattered by human ribs.
A boundary element approach based on a generalized minimal residual (GMRES) implementation of the Burton-Miller formulation was used in conjunction with phase conjugation techniques to focus the field of a 256-element random HIFU array behind human ribs at locations requiring intercostal and transcostal treatment.

A first-order k-space model for elastic wave propagation in heterogeneous media.
A pseudospectral model of linear elastic wave propagation is described based on the first order stress-velocity equations of elastodynamics. k-space adjustments to the spectral gradient calculationsExpand
