Lithotripters, Extracorporeal, Piezoelectric
Definition : Extracorporeal lithotripters that contain piezoelectric shock-wave generators. These generators contain an array of up to 4,000 ceramic elements arranged on a spherical dish. Shock waves are generated at the focal point of the dish when a short, high-voltage pulse is simultaneously applied to each element.
