EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF ACOUSTIC AND CAVITATION PROCESSES GENERATED BY THE LASER - LITHOTRIPSYB.C. IHLER and A. HIRTH
Institut Franco-Allemand de Recherches de Saint-Louis-ISL, 5 rue de l'Industrie, F-68300 Saint-Louis cedex, France
Up to now, the fragmentation processes occurring at the Laser-Lithotripsy are not well enough investigated. The main emphasis of this work lies on the visualization and the explanation of acoustic and cavitation processes taking place during the time after plasma ignition on the stone surface generated by a dye laser.
