Volumetric high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) guided by multiplane magnetic resonance (MR) thermometry has been shown to be a safe and efficient method to thermally ablate large tissue volumes. However, the induced temperature rise and thermal lesions show significant variability, depending on exposure parameters, such as power and timing, as well as(More)
Focused ultrasound is currently being developed as a non-invasive thermal ablation technique for benign and cancerous tumors in several organ systems. Although these therapies are designed to ablate tissue purely by thermal means, cavitation, the formation and collapse of gas bubbles, can occur. These bubbles can be unpredictable in their timing and(More)
