Abstract

Presentation of a theory and supporting experimental evidence that absolute temperature and small temperature differences may be measured in three-dimensions in suitable material by an ultrasound computed reconstruction tomographic technique which makes use of the temperature dependence of acoustic microwave- or ultrasound-heating induced hyperthermia in tumors. The associated problems and potential for reconstructing temperatures in tissues is discussed and examples of reconstructing temperatures in tissues is discussed and examples of reconstructed temperature maps induced by ultrasonic heating in non-living beef muscle is given.
