Within the framework of simulations, ultrasound trasducers for diagnosis and therapy are being designed and virtually tested on the computer. Parameter studies are conducted to find the optimal design and parameters for a given scenario.

Biological characteristics as well as heat dissipation in high energy therapeutical applications are taken into account.
