Cloud cavitation is potentially the most destructive form of cavitation. When the cloud cavitation is acoustically forced into a collapse, it has the potential to concentrate a very high pressure, more than 100 times the acoustic pressure, at its center. We experimentally investigate a method to control the collapse of high intensity focused ultrasound(More)
In the medical ultrasound field, microbubbles have recently been the subject of much interest. Controlling actively the effect of the microbubbles, a novel therapeutic method has been investigated. In this paper, our works on high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) lithotripsy with cavitating microbubbles are reviewed and the cavitation detection method to(More)
Shock wave lithotripsy has generally been a first choice for kidney stone removal. The shock wave lithotripter uses an order of microsecond pulse durations and up to a 100 MPa pressure spike triggered at approximately 0.5-2 Hz to fragment kidney stones through mechanical mechanisms. One important mechanism is cavitation. We proposed an alternative type of(More)
Nano-Biotechnology is coming more important in a medical application. Nanomicro-bubble could have a significant role in this field, like delivery system of drug, enzymes gene and so on. Micro-bubble is utilized as a contrast agent for ultrasound imaging and there are many commercial agents like Levovist, Sonovue, Optison, Sonazoid and so forth. Nano-bubbles(More)
In the therapeutic ultrasound field, the cavitation frequently forms a bubble cloud that consists of many microbubbles. A method to control the violent collapse of cloud cavitation is being developed. It is comprised of two frequency ultrasound. The first is a higher frequency ultrasound waveform that makes cloud cavitation at the surface of the object. The(More)
