An imaging system was developed for prostate elastography in vivo using a transrectal ultrasound (US) probe to guide high-intensity focused US (HIFU) therapy of prostate cancer. Uniform compression was applied using a balloon, while a sector image was acquired. Strain was calculated from the gradient of the displacements obtained from the ultrasonic signal using the cross-correlation technique. Elastograms were acquired on a total of 31 patients undergoing HIFU therapy for localised prostate… CONTINUE READING
