Acoustic Radiation Force

Kevin Chan Examples 0 Comments

Healthy tissue can be distinguished from lesions through mechanical response of the tissue. PZFlex decouples the problem into two parts: acoustic beam model that calculates ARFI stresses and then simulates the force model that uses ARFI calculations as boundary conditions. The simple 2D model is set up with a spherical lesion in a tissue-like material. Resources Acoustic Radiation Force Presentation

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Using Tissue Maps

Andy Tweedie Examples 0 Comments

Summary of the PZFlex HIFU Simulation The video demonstrates the acoustic solve for a High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) simulation. We generate the model from an imported tissue map of a human abdomen from the Visible Human Project. Calculating the thermal dose delivered by therapeutic treatments is dependent on many factors, and can be a complex process. PZFlex combines piezoelectric, acoustic, …
