Power Meters, Ultrasound, Therapeutic Unit, Shock Wave
Definition : Ultrasonic power meters designed to characterize the size, shape, and energy of the shock-wave field of ultrasonic radiation within the focal region; it requires a wide frequency response (up to 100 MHz) with appropriate linearity. These meters typically consist of a main unit with electronic circuitry and a display, as well as a remote submersible unit with a shock-wave sensor (e.g., a disposable piezoelectric material membrane). Shock-wave ultrasonic power meters are used to measure and assess the output characteristics of shock-wave ultrasonic therapeutic units such as extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripters.
