Abstract: In recent years, noninvasive thermal treatment by using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) has high potential in tumor treatment. The goal of this research is to develop an ultrasonography assisted robotic HIFU ablation system for tumor treatment. The system integrates the technologies of ultrasound image assisted guidance, robotic positioning control, and HIFU treatment planning. With the assistance of ultrasound image guidance technology, the tumor size and location can be determined from ultrasound images and the robot can be controlled to position the HIFU probe to focus on the target tumor. An experiment of using mountain-typed template to verify the positioning accuracy of the ultrasonography assisted robotic HIFU ablation system has been done. The results show that the average positioning error is 1.06mm with a standard deviation 0.25, which is feasible for tumor therapy.
