Stack of stars acquisitions with k-space weighted image contrast (KWIC) reconstruction provide an effectively high temporal resolution with high spatial resolution. The effective temporal resolution of KWIC reconstructions depend on the size of the object of interest. This abstract investigates the relationship between ultrasound focus size, the size of the KWIC window, and the accuracy/precision of PRF temperature measurements.
