Abstract : This book is a compilation of papers presented at the 2nd International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound, held in Seattle, Washington, July 29-August 1,2002. The Symposium attracted 200 participants from 14 different countries. A list of the author attendees (without the requisite photograph) is included in these proceedings. Approximately 100 abstracts were accepted for presentation at the conference. Invitations to the authors to submit articles for publication in this proceedings have resulted in this volume, which contains 73 separate articles. This volume has been divided into a number of topic categories, viz., Clinical Studies, Laboratory Studies, Simulation and Monitoring, Dosimetry, Engineering, Lithotripsy, Ultrasound-Enhanced Drug Delivery, and Sonodynamic Therapy. One can see from this topic coverage that the symposium was largely on HIFU (essentially the first five topics), yet also broad enough to cover most aspects of therapeutic ultrasound.
