Title: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Treatment Simulation for Cancer Therapies

Abstract:

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatments present a promising new modality for treating cancer and other health problems through hyperthermia and ablative therapy. HIFU offers several advantages over other treatment modalities for cancer, including that it is relatively non-invasive, doesn’t use ionizing radiation or poisonous chemicals, and can potentially be repeated with only short delays between treatments.

In this talk, I will present a brief overview of HIFU research taking place at the University of Utah. I will then examine my research in this field, which centers on treatment simulation and optimization to help reduce treatment times for HIFU cancer therapies.
