The Important Role of Focused Ultrasound in Applications of Cancer Treatment, Nerve Regulation and Molecular Diagnosis
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) means dramatically increasing the acoustic intensity at specific points by focusing the acoustic field, so as to make ultrasonic processes on specific points. Typical applications of focused ultrasound includes: lysis of tumor cells using high intensity ultrasound energy, in in vitro diagnosis application, especially for molecular diagnosis, homogenization and lysis of biological samples, nerve regulation, removal and lysis of thrombus by using implantable balloon catheter with HIFU transducers. In addition, high intensity focused ultrasound technology is also widely used for applications of cosmetology such as fat burning and winkles smoothing.
