A volumetric sonication method is proposed that produces volume ablations by steering the focal point along a predetermined trajectory consisting of multiple concentric outward-moving circles. This method was tested in vivo on pig thigh muscle (32 ablations in nine animals). Trajectory diameters were 4, 12, and 16 mm with sonication duration depending on(More)
Performing interventional procedures in the close proximity to an MR scanner widens the range of operations available for an optical tracking system. In order to gain the full benefits from both unrestricted use of surgical instruments outside the magnet and intraoperative imaging, a method for transferring the registration data of the optical navigator(More)
MRI can be used for monitoring temperature during a thermocoagulation treatment of tumors. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the suitability of a 3D steady-state free precession sequence (3D Fast Imaging with Steady-State Precession, 3D TrueFISP) for MR temperature measurement at 0.23 T, and to compare it to the spin-echo (SE) and spoiled 3D(More)
