- 1 February 2015
Intermittent high intensity ultrasound pulses with circulating contrast agent microbubbles can induce scattered cavitation caused myocardial microlesions of potential value for tissue reduction therapy. Expand
Quantitative assessment of damage during MCET: a parametric study in a rodent model
- Y. Zhu, D. Miller, Chunyan Dou, X. Lu, O. Kripfgans
- Journal of therapeutic ultrasound
- 16 October 2015
BackgroundMyocardial cavitation-enabled therapy (MCET) has been proposed as a means to achieve minimally invasive myocardial reduction using ultrasound to produce scattered microlesions by cavitating… Expand
Use of Theranostic Strategies in Myocardial Cavitation-Enabled Therapy.
The accumulation of microlesions induced by ultrasound interaction with contrast microbubbles in the myocardium potentially represents a new method of tissue reduction therapy. Anesthetized rats were… Expand
Congenital curvilinear palpable hyperpigmentation.
- Y. Zhu, J. Fitzpatrick, W. Weston
- Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
- 1 August 2005
We report two cases of congenital curvilinear palpable hyperpigmentation on the posterior aspect of bilateral legs in male infants. These lesions appeared shortly after birth and mimicked child abuse… Expand
Characterization of macrolesions induced by myocardial contrast enabled therapy (MCET)
Intermittent high intensity ultrasound pulses with circulating contrast agent microbubbles can induce scattered cavitation microlesions of potential value for myocardial reduction therapy. In this… Expand
Ultrasonic Cavitation-Enabled Treatment for Therapy of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Proof of Principle.
Ultrasound myocardial cavitation-enabled treatment was applied to the SS-16BN rat model of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy for proof of the principle underlying myocardial reduction therapy. A focused… Expand
Design and Demonstration of a Configurable Imaging Platform for Combined Laser, Ultrasound, and Elasticity Imaging

- Computer Science, Medicine
- IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging
- 1 July 2019
This paper introduces a configurable combined laser, ultrasound, and elasticity (CLUE) imaging platform capable of simultaneously providing quantitative acoustic, optical, and mechanical contrast for comprehensive diagnosis and monitoring of complex diseases. Expand
Maturation of Lesions Induced by Myocardial Cavitation-Enabled Therapy.
Myocardial contrast echocardiography at enhanced therapeutic parameters may be a novel means of tissue reduction therapy, as for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dahl/SS rats were anesthetized and… Expand
Multiple ultrasound cavitation-enabled treatments for myocardial reduction
BackgroundUltrasound myocardial cavitation enabled treatment (MCET) is an image-guided method for tissue reduction. In this study, a strategy of fractionated (multiple) treatments was tested for… Expand
Thermal neutron source location using a 3-D position-sensitive CdZnTe detector array
