Boiling Histotripsy
Clinical Applications

Our method has important advantages over thermal high intensity focused ultrasound treatments. We can control lesion location and size precisely and spare critical structures such as blood vessels.

In terms of clinical applications, the range is quite broad. It basically can be applied to any treatment that requires any form of tissue ablation.
