Abstract

With a growing number of magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) clinical applications, acoustic field characterization tools and methods for quality assurance are needed to ensure safe treatment outcomes. However, the established methods typically use equipment that cannot be used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite. Herein, we propose a technique for convenient and reliable acoustic field characterization of clinical MR-HIFU systems with the aid of MRI-based HIFU focus localization and electronic HIFU beam-steering.
