  author={Yuchan Wang and Yuen-Ting Wang and Yuan jie and Paul C Carson},
Hyperthermia therapy (HT) is used to treat diseases through heating of high temperature usually in conjunction with some other medical therapeutics like chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In this study, we propose a promising thermostatic hyperthermia method that uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for clinical tumor treatment combined with diagnostic ultrasound image guidance and non-invasive temperature monitoring through speed of sound (SOS) imaging. HIFU heating is realized by a ring… Expand
