Monitoring cell and tissue damage during ablation by high-intensity focussed ultrasound

Abstract:

High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) ablation is a promising technology for the non-invasive, targeted treatment of certain types of cancer. The technique functions by subjecting tumours to a cytotoxic level of intense, localised heating, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. However, a number of limitations in the available HIFU treatment monitoring methods are currently hampering the effectiveness and clinical adoption of the therapy.
