We have developed and evaluated a real-time MR thermometry-guided
system for acoustic power output and beam pattern control for prostate hyperthermia
therapy. It was designed to be integrated with a commercial focused ultrasound ablation
system and supports real-time ultrasound phase pattern switching and MR
thermometry for monitoring and automated power adjustment.
