Title:
METHOD FOR CONTROLLING HIGH-INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND BY USING A FREQUENCY CHANGE, AND HIGH-INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND TREATMENT DEVICE FOR SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/096443
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An embodiment of the present invention relates to a method for controlling high-intensity focused ultrasound by using a frequency change, and a high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment device for same. An embodiment of the present invention relates to a high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment device including: an ultrasound generating unit for transmitting high-intensity ultrasound to a specific region of a target; a transceiving unit for transmitting ultrasound for diagnosis to the target, and receiving an ultrasound echo signal reflected from the target in order to form a reception signal; a storage unit for storing the reception signal; and a control unit for confirming whether a temperature change at the specific region in the target is detected on the basis of the reception signal, determining whether the changed temperature reaches a predetermined target temperature if the temperature change is detected on the basis of a confirmation result, and controlling the ultrasound generating unit to stop transmitting the high-intensity ultrasound on the basis of a determination result. According to an embodiment of the present invention, by measuring a temperature of a tissue corresponding to a specific region of a target at high speed during a high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment, the position and degree of a surgical procedure may be confirmed in order to make the surgical procedure accurate.
