Ultrasound for Therapy

The use of high-intensity ultrasound for the treatment of diseased tissue, notably in oncology, is a highly competitive and particularly innovative field, as shown by the increasing number of teams involved on an international scale and the new devices using high-power ultrasound recently marketed.


Seminar Biomedical ultrasonic actuation at MEDUSA laboratory Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Author: Heikki J. Nieminen Summary: Non-linear ultrasonics enables actuation of matter from a distance in non-contacting manner. At will this can be achieved with negligible thermal effects. Examples of ultrasonic actuation methods include drug transport, ultrasonic manipulation of nano-fiber drug-delivery systems and acoustic levitation of small animals.
