Full modeling of high-intensity focused ultrasound and thermal heating in the kidney using realistic patient models

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE:High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy can be used for noninvasive treatment of kidney (renal) cancer, but the clinical outcomes have been variable. In this study, the efficacy of renal HIFU therapy was studied using a nonlinear acoustic and thermal simulations in three patients. METHODS:The acoustic simulations were conducted with and without refraction in order to investigate its effect on the shape, size, and pressure distribution at the focus. The values for the attenu...
