Ultrasound Device for Superficial Targets

This project intents to design and build a prototype for a device that uses low-intensity ultrasound for localized treatment of malignant skin cells. The industrial partner is interested on evaluate the performance of a current cosmetic device and the feasibility to use a device with similar characteristics to treat malignancy. We propose to first characterize this existing device to determine the conditions of operation, then evaluate the biological effects that are expected for those conditions. We will then design a prototype device that can maximize the effects and test this prototype on live cells comparing malignant vs. normal skin cells. TO BE CONT'D
