Conventional methods of tissue ablation for treatment of cardiac arrhythmia have their limitations, including the requirement for tissue contact and limited ability to create transmural lesions with minimal collateral damage. As part of a larger effort to create an efficient therapeutic ultrasound (US) system for cardiac ablation, this pilot study employed high-frequency US imaging to characterize the temporal evolution of high-intensity focused US (HIFU) lesion formation by rapid M-mode… CONTINUE READING
