Therapeutic bubbles: basic principles of cavitation in therapeutic ultrasound

Abstract:

At therapeutic intensities, the application of ultrasound is often accompanied by bubble activity. Bubbles concentrate (by orders of magnitude) acoustic energy and convert that acoustic energy into mechanical, thermal, chemical or frequency‐shifted acoustic energy. Depending on the specific clinical context, bubble and cavitation activity may be welcome or unwelcome. Whether desirable or not, certain basic phenomena may be observed, and certain basic principles deduced which can guide researc...
