Abstract

A system for MRI-guided prostate thermal therapy has been developed, and its capability to target thermal damage to specific regions of the prostate gland has been investigated in a canine model. Accurate positioning of heating applicators within the prostate gland was achieved, and quantitative, stable temperature maps were obtained during minutes of treatment using a custom-built four-channel phased array coil. MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound thermal therapy is feasible in a clinical MR imager, and quantitative thermometry can be performed during treatment to monitor and potentially to adjust the spatial heating pattern.
