Similar to other therapeutic methods, ultrasound surgery requires an imaging modality to monitor the extent of tissue damage during treatment. In this paper, we have considered the method of ultrasound-stimulated acoustic emission (USAE) that uses two ultrasonic beams at high frequency (1.7 MHz) (same as that used for ablation) to locally excite the tissue… CONTINUE READING
