Abstract

Miniature, high-frequency piezoelectric cermic hollow spheres were evaluated for potential use as hydrophones for exposimetry of high intensity ultrasound fields and as minimally invasive ablation devices. As a minimally invasive interstitial ablation device, several in vitro experiments were conducted using two different size spheres. The results demonstrated an increased necrosed tissue volume for increasing exposure time.
