Abstract: To conduct experiments using HIFU, the position of the HIFU focus should be exactly defined. Due to variety of medium and inaccuracy of the focus, such operations are usually accompanied with ultrasound, MRI, or photo-acoustics to check the HIFU focus in real time. Commonly, the procedure is examining HIFU ultrasound in a water tank in advance, searching for the focus area formed in the water using diagnostic ultrasound. However, since the diagnostic ultrasound interferes with the ultrasound from HIFU, fmding…
