Magnetic resonance guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MRgHIFU) has gained interest over the past decade due to its ability to administer controlled hyperthermia for localized drug release. One of the main challenges is that MR thermometry is highly susceptible to motion artifacts. A hybrid principal component analysis and projection onto dipole fields motion artifact removal method was applied in real-time during controlled hyperthermia in a murine model using a small-animal MRgHIFU system (Bruker 7T MRI and IGT HIFU). For a target temperature of 40.5°C to be maintained, a significant increase in ultrasound power was required when tissue motion was observed.
