|20090054772||Focused Ultrasound Therapy System - The present invention pertains to an ultrasound therapy system and more specifically, to a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy apparatus guided by image registration and fusion method. The therapy system of the present invention comprises a central control means; an acoustic energy applicator; a mechanical driving and locating means of said acoustic energy applicator; a real-time B-mode ultrasound image guiding device. Further the therapy system of the present invention comprises an immobilization means for body position. By the help of this immobilization means for body position, real-time B-mode ultrasound images can be registered with diagnosis images, and then on the basis of registration, said B-mode ultrasound images are fused with said diagnosis images for guiding said therapy. Comparing to the existed technical solutions in this field, the present invention has effectively solved the difficult problems in high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy and particularly for tumor treatment with a low cost. And it provides a very practical technical solution, which can be easily applied to clinical treatment of tumors.||02-26-2009|
|20080281252||Apparatus for Body Cavity Delivery with Medium, Body Cavity Leading-in and Ultrasound Block - The present invention generally relates to a medical apparatus. More particularly, the present invention relates to an apparatus for delivering a medium to body cavity of mammals including a human, especially to an apparatus for expanding rectum. Specifically, the present invention relates to the field of focused ultrasound treatment with a main purpose to provide an auxiliary device for ultrasound therapy applied to uterine myoma so as to avoid damage by ultrasound after focused within body. Therefore, the present invention provides an apparatus for blocking ultrasound, comprising (1) lead-in means for entering into said body cavity; and (2) accommodation means for containing ultrasound blocking medium, which enwraps the lead-in means outside.||11-13-2008|
|20080275330||Mri Guided Ultrasound Therapy Apparatus - This invention provides a MRI guided ultrasound therapy apparatus. It comprises a static field magnet adapted to apply a static magnetic field in an magnetic resonance volume at a predetermined disposition; at least one ultrasound energy applicator adapted to apply energy within an energy application zone at a predetermined disposition; and The mechanical positioning means for moving said ultrasound energy applicator to position the applicator so that the energy application zone intersects said magnetic resonance volume within said region of the subject. In that apparatus, the static field magnet is open at both ends or open at side. The sided open is upward or downward and the mechanical positioning means of this ultrasound energy applicator is close to and is located outside of this sided open. This invention reduces the space limitation for the mechanical positioning means of the ultrasound transducer. Meanwhile, the non-magnetic requirement on the mechanical positioning means become less greatly and particularly the problem of interference from magnetic field produced by working current of the transducer power cord to MRI system can be solved.||11-06-2008|
