Abstract

This study mainly concerns about the design of HIFU technology which is a popular research field in non-invasive surgery. HIFU is a kind of timeconsuming non-invasive treatment. Therefore, this study proposes a novel HIFU probe which can provide large focus area and set up a 3D simulation system which can verify the large focus area. By comparing with general probe, the simulation result confirmed that the design in this study is indeed reducing the surgical time.
