British scientists say they have created a sensor capable of measuring localized ultrasonic cavitations in research that will help hospitals remain hygienic. Cavitations occur when bubbles implode in a liquid when a high frequency sound wave is applied. The researchers said their sensor, the first of its kind, will help hospitals ensure that their instruments are properly disinfected before they are used on patients. Cavitation is used throughout the United Kingdom's National Health Service...

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign -- Using a technique employed by astronomers to determine stellar surface temperatures, chemists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have measured the temperature inside a single, acoustically driven collapsing bubble. Their results seem out of this world. "When bubbles in a liquid get compressed, the insides get hot -- very hot," said Ken Suslick, the Marvin T. Schmidt Professor of Chemistry at Illinois and a researcher at the...

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy
2013-03-04 16:24:04

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is the noninvasive treatment of kidney stones, stones in the gallbladder as well as calcium build ups in the liver using acoustic pulses. Procedure A lithotriptor breaks up the calcium stones without damage being done to the patient through the use of high-intensity, externally-applied, focused acoustic pulses. By laying the patient down on their back and placing a water-filled coupling device under the back at the level of the kidneys, the...
