About this book

This book provides a thorough introduction to the fundamental physics and current state-of-the art in therapeutic ultrasound. Expert chapters present theoretical and experimental methods and review characteristic parameters of transducers, tissue property, acoustic fields, induced bioeffects, and clinical applications. The book also reviews ultrasound and MR-based imaging methods used to monitor treatments; transducer designs, including a description of current devices and applications; and histological and biochemical methods to analyze the therapeutic effect of ultrasound. This key volume serves as a must-have reference for students, scientists, engineers, and clinicians.
