Cavitational methods for characterising and testing clinical high-intensity focused ultrasound systems

Abstract:

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is rapidly emerging as a viable alternative to more invasive methods for routine treatment of malignant tissue. Key to the success of HIFU therapy is the development of standardised Quality Assessment (QA) procedures, designed to regularly assess the safety and efficacy of clinical HIFU transducers. Current HIFU QA procedures offer either accurate spatial calibration at the expense of impractically long acquisition times, or more rapid characteris...
