Abstract

The non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system, we propose, tracks and follows movement in an affected area -kidney stones here-, while High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is irradiated onto the area. In this paper, the concept of the novel medical support system, which integrates the therapy and diagnostics, is illustrated at first. Secondly, structuring the required functions for the proposed system is discussed. Third, the overview of the constructed system configuration is illustrated. Fourth, the problem of the stone motion tracking by ultrasonography is clarified. To cope with this problem, the respiratory motion of a human kidney is analyzed and a controller, by utilizing the quasi-periodical motion of the respiratory kidney motion, is proposed. Finally, the result of the servoing and HIFU irradiation experiments of the model stone, which moves based on the real human kidney motion data, is reported to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed controller and the constructed system.
