Computer-based method of determining the path of a HIFU beam through tissue layers from medical images to improve cancer treatment

McCarthy, E. and Pather, S. (2008) Computer-based method of determining the path of a HIFU beam through tissue layers from medical images to improve cancer treatment. In: Mechatronics and machine vision in practice. Springer-Verlag, Berlin, Germany, pp. 289-302. ISBN 978-354074026-1

Abstract

The accurate prediction of the path of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is essential for the destruction of cancerous cells. Knowledge about the layers of tissues traversed by the ultrasound beam would offer a means of predicting the path and hence provide the precise alignment of the HIFU transducers.
