The ability to detect and monitor the cavitation activity during extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is important to ensure the effectiveness and the safety of the treatment. By using acoustic emission measurement and high-speed photography, the transient cavitation generated during ESWL was assessed. The effects of tissue mimicking material on ESWL-induced cavitation activity were also determined.
