8th International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound
The proceedings offer a comprehensive view of the state-of-the-art of Therapeutic Ultrasound from the basic science to device technology to clinical practice. Papers describing new therapies of cancer and other tissue abnormalities using innovative device concepts are included. In particular, advanced transducer technologies for noninvasive or minimally invasive delivery of therapeutic ultrasound under image guidance are described by a significant number of papers within the proceedings. The proceedings also include papers on the use of ultrasound in enhancing drug delivery with and without the use of ultrasound contrast agents. In addition, standards and quality assurance issues are addressed by a number of papers. Finally, clinical and pre-clinical in vivo studies are also described.
