Abstract

The objective of this study is to evaluate the feasibility to integrate ultrasound echography as an additional imaging modality for continuous target tracking, while performing simultaneously real-time MR- thermometry to guide a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) ablation. Experiments on a moving phantom were performed with MRI-guided HIFU during continuous ultrasound echography. Real-time US echography-based target tracking during MR-guided HIFU heating was performed with heated area dimensions similar to those obtained for a static target. The combination of both imaging modalities shows great potential for real-time beam steering and MR-thermometry.
