optimal positioning of the shock wave focus with respect to its longitudinal and lateral dimensions
precise localization of the insertion plane at the point of bone/ligament insertion
positioning of transducer directly above the ROI when using ultrasound localization
minimization of the risk of injury to surrounding structures (e.g., lungs when treating shoulder)
avoidance of periostal over-stimulation, which can often trigger pain response.
