Abstract

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is an acoustic therapy that is having a great progress in clinical applications, especially applied in cancer treatment. Focused ultrasound may be used to generate highly localized heating to destroy tumors of bone, brain, breast, liver, pancreas, rectum, kidney, testes and prostate. In some cases without anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. This therapy requires the knowledge of several physical properties, which are not widely known, as well as other input parameters such as frequency and intensity. Those are important for a successful treatment. In this paper, a parametric simulated study is presented to determine the suitable intervals of hyperthermia for optimal performance in treatment of cancer made with high intensity focused ultrasound.
