Focused Ultrasound Induced Heating in Tissue Phantom
Application ID: 12659
This tutorial shows how to model tissue heating induced by focused ultrasound. First, the stationary acoustic field in the water and the tissue are modeled to obtain the acoustic intensity distribution in the tissue. The absorbed acoustic energy is then calculated and used as the heat source in a Bioheat Transfer interface in the tissue domain in a time-dependent study simulating the heating and cooling of the tissue when exposed to ultrasound for 1 second.
This model is suitable for tissue heating when the acoustic pressure at the focus is well below acoustic cavitation threshold.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
