Shahram Vaezy, Roy W Martin, Stephen J Carter, George W Keilman, Victor Y Fujimoto, Lawrence A Crum: Noise-free real time ultrasonic imaging of a treatment site undergoing high intensity focused ultrasound therapy. University of Washington, Ronald M Anderson, July 30, 2002: US06425867 (461 worldwide citation)

Method and apparatus for the simultaneous use of ultrasound on a probe for imaging and therapeutic purposes. The probe limits the effects of undesirable interference noise in a display by synchronizing high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves with an imaging transducer to cause the noise to be ...
