PURPOSE MR-guided high-intensity contact ultrasound (HICU) was suggested as an alternative therapy for esophageal and rectal cancer. To offer high-quality MR guidance, two prototypes of receive-only opposed-solenoid coil were integrated with 64-element cylindrical phased-array ultrasound transducers (rectal/esophageal). METHODS The design of integrated(More)
Introduction. Minimally invasive treatment using endoluminal high intensity contact ultrasound (HICU) is being suggested as an alternative cancer therapy in esophagus, colon or rectum [1]. This ablative technique uses the acoustic energy delivered by an ultrasound transducer introduced in the lumen, close to the target tissue. A successful therapy requires(More)
