Ultrasound (US) imaging is widely used for the real-time guidance of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment at a relatively low cost. However, ultrasound image guided HIFU (USgHIFU) is limited in the real-time monitoring of HIFU treatment due to the large amplitude HIFU signals received by the US imaging transducer. The amplitude of the HIFU… CONTINUE READING
