Investigation of the stress response to mechanical versus thermal non-ablative focused ultrasound therapy in three in vivo murine cancer models

Abstract

Background/introduction Within the focal point of focused ultrasound (FUS), high pressure fluctuations cause shear stress on cells and tissues with energy dissipation leading to heating of the targeted tissue. The extent of the mechanical and thermal effects strongly depends on the ultrasound parameters and also potentially the acoustic properties of the… (More)
