Real-time three-dimensional passive cavitation detection for clinical high intensity focussed ultrasound systems

Abstract:

Bubble activity during High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) surgery has been linked with desirable effects, such as an enhanced heat deposition caused by inertial cavitation, and undesirable effects, such as lesion migration caused by boiling bubbles. There is presently no reliable way of achieving spatiotemporal monitoring of cavitation activity during clinical HIFU treatments. In the present work, a near-acoustically-transparent two-dimensional 32-element PVDF array was designed and mo...
