Real-time monitoring of high-intensity focused ultrasound lesion formation using acousto-optic sensing

Abstract:

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a promising modality that is used to noninvasively ablate soft tissue tumors. Nevertheless, real-time treatment monitoring with diagnostic ultrasound still poses a significant challenge since tissue necrosis, in the absence of cavitation or boiling, provides little acoustic contrast with normal tissue. In comparison, the optical properties of tissue are significantly altered accompanying lesion formation. A photorefr...
