Although pressure pulse waves have been used as the standard treatment of kidney stones (ESWL) for the last 15 years, the relevance of their different physical parameters is not fully understood. The new approach of tissue treatment for pain reduction (ESWA, ESWT) raises even more questions. In 1998, the IEC document 61846 ‘‘Ultrasonic‐pressure pulse lithotripters—Characteristics of fields’’ was internationally accepted. It contains the descriptions of all the parameters which may be measured… CONTINUE READING
