While perturbative QCD methods fully describe experimental results at high energies, and chiral perturbation theory is the low energy effective theory of the strong interactions, a form of duality is observed connecting these two regimes. In these intermediate kinematics, a wide variety of reactions are observed which can be described simultaneously by single particle (quark) scattering, and by exclusive resonance (hadron) scattering. The contributions in this proceedings volume discuss recent and existing results, and aim to foster current and future research, investigating the phenomenon of quark?hadron duality. This unique volume contains research work by scientists from different arenas of hadronic physics, dealing with different manifestations of quark?hadron duality.

Therapeutic ultrasound can be broadly defined as the application of ultrasound waves for biomedical purposes other than imaging. For imaging, the manner by which the ultrasound waves propagate is designed so that energy interactions with the tissue being imaged (or in the path of the waves on their way to the target or beyond) do not cause any undesired or harmful effects. Therapeutic ultrasound exposures, on the other hand, are specifically tailored for creating effects, where these can range from mild and reversible to more robust and irreversible, depending on the application. This book presents a detailed description of the different ultrasound mechanisms for producing bio-effects, and the manner by which the multitude of these interactions between the ultrasound energy and biological tissues can be employed for a host of therapeutic applications.

Abstract: Therapeutic ultrasound employs the acoustic energy carried by high-frequency mechanical wave to induce beneficial effects on living systems. This therapeutic approach is advantageous in that its energy could be remotely focused on the targeted tissue in a non-invasive manner. Although ultrasound therapy has been shown to be feasible and effective in both laboratory experiments and clinical trials, its safety and efficacy are still challenged by the lack of fundamental knowledge of how ultrasound wave exerts physical effects on the cell system and how the cell functionally responds to the ultrasound stimulation. Motivated by the above insight, this thesis aims to provide direct experimental evidence for illustrating the biophysical details of how ultrasound wave (alone or combined with microbubble) interacts with live cells. An acoustic experimental platform with well-calibrated ultrasound field and live-cell imaging modality was developed to observe ultrasound-cell interaction. Based on this platform, a series of single-cell studies was then conducted to monitor the structural and functional changes of the live cell as well as its fluorescently-labelled components over the course of ultrasound exposure. Results obtained in this thesis provided image-level evidence for characterizing the ultrasound-cell interactions in the following three aspects. First, it was found that low-intensity ultrasound pulsing could directly perturb the plasma membrane, the cytoskeletal network and the inner nucleus of live neuroblastoma cells. This cytomechanical perturbation would result in reversible and structural alternations of subcellular components. Second, low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, when applied on neuronal cells, could exert morphological impact through inducing neurite retraction and cell body displacement, and electrophysiological impact in the form of membrane depolarization and calcium influx. This finding verified the potential of ultrasound in modulating neuronal development and excitability. Last, the cell membrane perforation and resealing dynamics induced by the ultrasound-activated microbubble were visualized and characterized. The subsequent cellular responses to this ultrasound-induced sonoporation were also identified at both membrane and cytoskeleton levels. The significance of this study is to provide direct and solid experimental evidence for understanding the biophysical interactions between ultrasound wave and live cell. This advanced scientific interpretation is definitely crucial for establishing the cellular mechanisms of therapeutic ultrasound and for providing technical insights into ultrasound treatment.

This book highlights the potential of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, or LIPUS, to introduce a new era in dentistry by revolutionizing the approach to dental treatment and providing a cure for pathologic conditions long considered untreatable. Readers will find information on all aspects of LIPUS, from its mode of action and biologic mechanisms to the full range of emerging clinical applications. The role of LIPUS in promoting dental tissue repair and regeneration and in tissue engineering is fully explained in a series of chapters focusing on stimulation of cell metabolism in the dentocraniofacial region, bone healing, periodontal regeneration, the temporomandibular joint, pulp cell differentiation, the salivary glands, and orthodontics. The past two decades have witnessed numerous discoveries that have enhanced the scope for use of therapeutic ultrasound in dentistry. In summarizing the latest knowledge in this exciting field, the book will be of interest to dental surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, and other practitioners.
