Dr. Bailey's current research focuses on translating ultrasound
technology to manage kidney stones. He also works on histotripsy to
liquefy tissue and metrology methods to characterize high intensity
focused ultrasound sources.
Using sound waves to break up kidney stones
An innovative technique called burst wave lithotripsy developed by researchers, including ME Associate Professor Michael Bailey, may provide an effective, more accessible alternative for noninvasive treatment of kidney stones, according to initial human studies.
UW team demonstrates 'acoustic tweezers'
The new technique may offer a noninvasive solution to kidney stones and other medical applications.
