Abstract

Vibro-acoustography (VA) is a novel modality that has shown significant features in imaging hard inclusions and inhomogeneities within biological tissue. Here we focus on its applications for prostate imaging as well as some of its related feasibility studies to guide minimally-invasive therapies such as brachytherapy and cryosurgery.
