Abstract: The aim of this proposal is to implement MR temperature measurement techniques that accelerate data acquisition speed and are robust to motion-related errors. Collaboration between the research groups at the University of Utah and the University of Geneva will facilitate the transmission, implementation, and further development of these site-specific MR temperature measurement techniques and will accelerate the two goups' respective goals of using MRgHIFU to treat tumors in breast and liver.
