Analysis of Energy Conversion, Focusing, and Dissipation in Kidney Stone Pulverization with Focused Shock Wave

Abstract

Applying the Huygens-Fresnel principle and focusing characteristics of rotational ellipsoid, this paper analyses and computes the energy conversion, focusing, and dissipation in the pulverization of kidney stones with focused shock waves, hence provides reference parameters for the design of kidney stone lithotripters. Keywordsmain focal spot; reflection… (More)
