Ultrasound imaging is one the useful applications of
diagnostic ultrasound. This technique is most commonly used for kidney stones
and diagnosis of the pregnancy. Most recently, researchers could discover the
ultrasound application in therapy referred to as therapeutic ultrasound 1.
First Wood and Loomis in 1927 could discover that
ultrasound can interact with tissues leads to some biological changes 3. Following this study, in 1933 the
application of ultrasound therapy in hyperthermic cancer treatment was
introduced 2. In 1999, a paper published
4 that presented various therapeutic applications
of ultrasound. According to this study, tissue heating application of
ultrasound was the first application of ultrasound for example, for treatment of
In 2007, low power and high power ultrasound therapy
was offered in 5. Referring to this study, the low power ultrasound therapy
included the physiotherapy, fracture repair, sonophoresis and some other
applications while, the high power application of ultrasound contains the High
Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and lithotripsy.
In 2013 a paper published 6 that presented the high-intensity focused
ultrasound application in noninvasive breast cancer treatment. In 7, targeted microbubbles are
introduced as a novel method for kidney stones treatment.
More recently, in 2015 a thesis published that was a
presentation of the multi-physics computational modelling of focused ultrasound
therapy. Besides this research study, in 8 a 2D MRI compatible robot was designed and
implemented that was applicable for prostate cancer treatment.
This research study is an explanation for therapeutic ultrasound.
Studding the nature of acoustic waves constructed the first stage of this study.
Followed by the investigating the houses of the acoustic medium. Density, speed
of the sound compressibility and absorption were investigated. Explaining the acoustic
wave equities was covered the next stage. Inspecting the aftermaths that
ultrasonic waves can have on the tissues was implemented. After elemental
explanation of the ultrasonic physics, the main concepts of ultrasonic curation
were presented. HIFU, the most offbeat technology that used ultrasonic waves
for curation purpose was demonstrated. Underlying doctrines were covered with
details. In coming points the utilization of remedial ultrasonic in prostate
cancer curation plus the breast cancer remedy and finally in abolishing kidney crystals
