Ultrasound imaging is one the useful applications ofdiagnostic ultrasound.
This technique is most commonly used for kidney stonesand diagnosis of the pregnancy. Most recently, researchers could discover theultrasound application in therapy referred to as therapeutic ultrasound 1. First Wood and Loomis in 1927 could discover thatultrasound can interact with tissues leads to some biological changes 3. Following this study, in 1933 theapplication of ultrasound therapy in hyperthermic cancer treatment wasintroduced 2. In 1999, a paper published4 that presented various therapeutic applicationsof ultrasound. According to this study, tissue heating application ofultrasound was the first application of ultrasound for example, for treatment ofinjury. In 2007, low power and high power ultrasound therapywas offered in 5.
Referring to this study, the low power ultrasound therapyincluded the physiotherapy, fracture repair, sonophoresis and some otherapplications while, the high power application of ultrasound contains the HighIntensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and lithotripsy.In 2013 a paper published 6 that presented the high-intensity focusedultrasound application in noninvasive breast cancer treatment. In 7, targeted microbubbles areintroduced as a novel method for kidney stones treatment.More recently, in 2015 a thesis published that was apresentation of the multi-physics computational modelling of focused ultrasoundtherapy. Besides this research study, in 8 a 2D MRI compatible robot was designed andimplemented 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, speedof the sound compressibility and absorption were investigated. Explaining the acousticwave equities was covered the next stage.
Inspecting the aftermaths thatultrasonic waves can have on the tissues was implemented. After elementalexplanation of the ultrasonic physics, the main concepts of ultrasonic curationwere presented. HIFU, the most offbeat technology that used ultrasonic wavesfor curation purpose was demonstrated. Underlying doctrines were covered withdetails. In coming points the utilization of remedial ultrasonic in prostatecancer curation plus the breast cancer remedy and finally in abolishing kidney crystalswere examined.
