Abstract

Targeting the ultrasound beam and predicting the thermal coagulation in advance are important for high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment. Cavitation bubbles are known to enhance ultrasonic heating, however, temporal and spatial control of their generation is not simple. In our previous study, a method utilizing acoustic radiation force to predict thermal coagulation was suggested. In this study, it was investigated whether the proposed method works effectively even for the cavitation-enhanced ultrasonic heating and can be used to ensure both safety and efficiency of the treatment.
