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.
