Role of acoustic cavitation in the delivery and monitoring of cancer treatment by high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)

Abstract:

Acoustic cavitation has been shown to play a key role in a wide array of novel therapeutic ultrasound applications. This paper presents a brief discussion of the physics of thermally relevant acoustic cavitation in the context of high-intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU). Models for how different types of cavitation activity can serve to accelerate tissue heating are presented, and results suggest that the bulk of the enhanced heating effect can be attributed to the absorption of broadband ac...
