Abstract

This paper describes the development of a HIFU irradiation system with the goal of devising an intrauterine means of preventing hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) or balloon atrial septostomy (BAS). Four large confocal ultrasound transducers were adopted in a large animal experiment to simulate an intervention for the treatment of fetuses in utero.
