Extensive mechanical tissue fractionation can be achieved using successive high intensity ultrasound pulses ("histotripsy"). Histotripsy has many potential medical applications where noninvasive tissue removal is desired (e.g., tumor ablation). There is a concern that debris generated by histotripsy-induced tissue fractionation might be an embolization hazard. The aim of this study is to measure the size distribution of these tissue debris particles. Histotripsy pulses were produced by a 513… CONTINUE READING
