Thermal ablation and hyperthermia remain as potent treatment options for cancer. However, the inability to closely monitor temperature elevations from thermal therapies in real time continues to limit clinical applicability. Therefore, the development of new imaging techniques capable of providing feedback and temperature monitoring is highly medically significant. In this study, quantitative ultrasound imaging techniques based on spectral estimates were examined for their ability to monitor… CONTINUE READING
