Passive cavitation mapping for monitoring ultrasound therapy

Abstract:

Cavitation is a phenomenon present during many ultrasound therapies, including the thermal ablation of malignant tissue using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Inertial cavitation, in particular, has been previously shown to result in increased heat deposition and to be associated with broadband noise emissions that can be readily monitored using a passive receiver without interference from the main ultrasound signal. The present work demonstrates how an array of passive receivers can...
