HIFU lesion characterization on liver: Acquisition and results

Abstract:

A key problem in the practical use of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as a tool for cancer treatment is the non-invasive characterization of the regions of tissue that have been successfully necrosed. Previously, we proposed an approach to image guidance based on the use of echo data obtained from a diagnostic ultrasound transducer and a shape-based inverse scattering approach. Here an experimental apparatus is described to acquire data for in vitro phantom experiments and ex vivo ex...
