This paper reviews ultrasound imaging methods for the guidance of therapeutic focused ultrasound (USgFUS), with emphasis on real-time preclinical methods. Guidance is interpreted in the broadest sense to include pretreatment planning, siting of the FUS focus, real-time monitoring of FUS-tissue interactions, and real-time control of exposure and damage assessment. The paper begins with an overview and brief historical background of the early methods used for monitoring FUS-tissue interactions… CONTINUE READING
