Spectral analysis of ultrasound r.f. image data to monitor cavitation and thermal bubble formation in HIFU treatment

Abstract:

The high acoustic intensity in HIFU often results in production, either through acoustic cavitation or boiling. these are believed to be a primary contributor to tissue . Some HIFU protocols rely on the evidence of cavitation a strong indicator of tissue lesions. Cavitation is normally with hyperechoic regions ('bright up') in ultrasound mode image feedback but other events may cause as well, so spectral detection methods are of increasing interest in early and robust detection of activity.
