Monitoring and guidance of high intensity focused ultrasound exposures in real time using acousto-optic imaging: feasibility and demonstration ex vivo

Abstract:

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a powerful noninvasive tool for targeted tissue ablation. Monitoring of the treatment process and efficacy in real time, however, remains challenging. The tissue necrosis during the HIFU exposure leads to changes in optical absorption and scattering coefficients. In this paper, we explore the use of acousto-optic imaging (AOI), a hybrid technique that combines ultrasound with diffuse light to obtain deep-tissue optical contrast at ultrasound resolut...
