Topic status: We're looking for students to study this topic.

This project involves the development of a focussed ultrasound system for ablating tumours. The system will comprise a hemispherically shaped ultrasound transducer for focussing ultrasound in the body and a 3D ultrasound system for visualising the target. Spatial tracking devices will be attached to the focussing transducer and 3D ultrasound probe and software developed for aligning the axis of the focussing transducer with the target. Image analysis software will also be developed for locating regions of tumour ablation.
