BACKGROUND A prototype magnetic resonance image (MRI)-conditional robot was developed for navigating a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) system in order to treat prostate cancer transrectally. MATERIALS AND METHODS The developed robotic device utilizes three PC-controlled axes: a linear axis for motion along the rectum, an angular axis for rotation(More)
JBiSE). ABSTRACT The effectiveness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to monitor thermal lesions created by High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) in rabbit liver in vivo is investigated. The MRI sequences of T1-weighted, and T2-weighted fast spin echo (FSE) were evaluated. The main goal in this paper was to find the range of repetition time (TR) and(More)
