Abstract:

A method and apparatus for treatment of tissue located in a specified region of a mammal, the region being proximate to a gas filled cavity which is contained in a fluid medium within the mammal. The resonance frequency of the cavity is determined, and an acoustic signal having a frequency which is equal to the resonance frequency is directed upon the cavity to resonate the caviy, at a selected level of intensity, until a first phase of treatment has been concluded. Thereupon, a selected second phase in the treatment of the tissue is performed. Author
