1. A system for acoustic energy into a human body comprising:

  • an array of acoustic transducers configured to transmit acoustic energy into the body;

    circuitry for focusing the acoustic energy at specific regions in the body;

    an acoustic receiver adapted to receive the focused acoustic energy and convert the acoustic energy into electrical energy;

    a pair of electrodes connected to the acoustic receiver and adapted to transfer the electrical energy through the body;

    wherein the circuitry is further configured to detect the electrical energy transferred through the body by the pair of electrodes to determine whether the acoustic energy is focused on the acoustic receiver.
