Sound Surgical Technologies' Chief Technology Officer Presents Paper on Focused Ultrasound Technology
Date:6/2/2009

PORTLAND, Ore., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Mark E. Schafer, Chief Technology Officer at Sound Surgical Technologies LLC and internationally recognized expert in ultrasonic technology, recently presented a paper on high intensity focused ultrasound at the 157th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Portland, OR.

"The growing use of high intensity focused ultrasound, or HIFU, has driven the need for reliable, reproducible measurements of the acoustic fields," said Dr. Schafer. "Standardizing the measurements of this energy source will allow us to better utilize the technology."

Dr. Schafer was chosen to present on this topic to his peers due to his vast experience in the field of ultrasonic energy. He is currently Vice President of the Ultrasonic Industry Association (UIA), Chairman of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Ultrasound Technical Committee, and serves on the Board of Governors of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). He has been published over 40 times and has been issued 13 patents.

"HIFU and other transdermal ultrasound technologies are becoming an increasingly popular topic in medicine, including aesthetics," Dr. Schafer adds. "A better understanding of the acoustic elements will allow companies to capitalize on the numerous applications of HIFU energy."

About Sound Surgical - Founded in 1998, Sound Surgical Technologies placed its first VASER(R) Lipo System on the market in March 2001. More than 100,000 procedures have been performed worldwide using the VASER System. An alternative to traditional tumescent liposuction, the VASER - Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance - Lipo System uses an advanced ultrasonic fat removal technology that has become a trusted method in a society saturated with fad procedures. Demanded by physicians and patients alike, the results are smooth and consistent with fast patient recovery. The VASER Lipo System is FDA cleared for body contouring.

About The Acoustical Society of America - During the 79 years since the Acoustical Society was formed, it has enjoyed a healthy growth in membership and in stature. The present membership of approximately 7000 includes leaders in acoustics in the United States of America and other countries. The Society has attracted members from various fields related to sound including physics, electrical, mechanical, and aeronautical engineering, oceanography, biology, physiology, psychology, architecture, speech, noise and noise control, and music. To assure adequate attention to these separate fields and to new ones that may develop, the Society establishes technical committees and technical groups charged with keeping abreast of developments and needs of the membership in their specialized fields. From the Society's inception, its members have been involved in the development of acoustical standards concerned with terminology, measurement procedures, and criteria for determining the effects of noise and vibration.
