Thermal lesion development in bubble‐mediated HIFU: modeling

Abstract:

Fast heat deposition during high‐intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy is often accompanied by acoustic cavitation. In vivo and in vitro experiments have shown that with cavitation the heating rate is greatly enhanced and HIFU efficacy can be favorably improved. However uncontrolled cavitation usually results in irregular lesions and other undesirable effects. This work studies the interaction between the ultrasound pressure, cavitation and temperature field in a medium containing cavit...
