We are at the forefront of standardisation for therapeutic ultrasound, to enable accurate characterisation of devices. Ultrasound has been proven to be effective in a range of therapeutic applications – from physiotherapy, shock-wave lithotripsy, ablation of soft tissue tumours, pain palliation of bone metastases and neurosurgery.
These applications use a range of intensities and frequencies, and exploit a number of bioeffects. We are active in a number of research areas, including:
NPL is an active member of EPSRC Network+ THuNDDAR (Therapeutic Ultrasound Network for Drug Delivery and Ablation Research).
