Application Note

Piezoelectric Ultrasound Transducers For Therapeutics


Piezoelectric ultrasonic transducers open up new and innovative therapeutic possibilities that improve or even substitute many established procedures: Minimally invasive and gentle treatment methods with improved therapy success and fewer side effects can be realized using piezoelectric ultrasound transducers. Therapeutic ultrasound refers to methods in which ultrasound is not only a means of diagnosis but also the core element of the therapy, e. g. tissue ablation, targeted drug delivery, ultrasound-assisted thrombolysis, and lithotripsy. Both focused and unfocused ultrasound can be used for these applications.
