Paper Abstract

Minimally invasive thermal therapies for the treatment of prostate cancer offer potential to reduce cost, treatment time, and patient trauma. A drawback to such therapies is that it is often difficult or impossible to know the exact volume of which is being destroyed. In this work, we report on the use of magnetic resonance (MR) thermal imaging to provide real-time feedback control over laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) in an in vivo canine prostate model.
