Intracavitary ultrasound phased arrays for prostate thermal therapies: MRI compatibility and in vivo testing.


A 62 element MRI-compatible linear phased array was designed and constructed to investigate the feasibility of using transrectal ultrasound for the thermal therapeutic treatment of prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia. An aperiodic design technique developed in a previous study was used in the design of this array, which resulted in reduced… (More)
