HIFU-induced heating in vascularized phantoms: a quantitative comparison of theory and experiment

Abstract:

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) can be used to control bleeding, both from individual blood vessels as well as from gross damage to the capillary bed. The presence of vascularity can limit one’s ability to elevate the temperature of blood vessels owing to convective heat transport. In an effort to better understand the heating process in tissues with vascular structure we have developed a numerical simulation that couples models for ultrasound propagation, acoustic streaming, ultraso...
