FIG. 1.

Inertial cavitation activity, quantified by the standard deviation of the signal received by a 15 MHz passive cavitation detection transducer confocally aligned with the ultrasound source, for a 2 s 0.5 MHz continuous-wave HIFU exposure in degassed liver, starting at t = 2 s and ending at t = 4 s. At low peak rarefactional pressures, there is little cavitation activity; however, at an acoustic pressure of 2.14 MPa, cavitation activity to rapidly increase approximately 0.5 s into the exposure period (Ref. 3).

The effect of transients of the Keller-Miksis equation on the rectified diffusion process for a 2 μm bubble: (a) Radius-time profile; the square marks the “zero point” of steady state oscillation. (b) Bubble growth rate with and without Keller–Miksis transients.

The effect of initial concentration profile on the rectified diffusion process for a 2 μm bubble: (a) Changes in the nondimensional mass increase and (b) changes in the nondimensional concentration profile after 100 μs of insonation.

FIG. 4.

Variation in radius-time profiles at 1 MHz for equilibrium bubble sizes of (a) μm, driven at 500 kPa, and (b) μm, driven at 1 MPa.
