Aiming at time-spatial characterization of tissue temperature when ultrasound is applied for thermal therapeutic proposes two experiments were developed considering gel-based phantoms, one of them including an artificial blood vessel. The blood vessel was mimicking blood flow in a common carotid artery. For each experiment phantoms were heated by a therapeutic ultrasound (TU) device emitting different intensities (0.5, 1, 1.5, 1.8 W/cm2). Temperature was monitored by thermocouples and estimated through imaging ultrasound transducer's signals within specific special points inside the phantom. The temperature estimation procedure was based on temporal echo-shifts (TES), computed based on echo-shifts collected through image ultrasound (IU) transducer. Results show that TES is a reliable non-invasive method of temperature estimation, regardless the TU intensities applied. Presence of a pulsatile blood flow vessel in the focal point of TU transducer reduces thermal variation in more than 50%, also affecting the temperature variation in the surrounding area. In other words, vascularized tissues require longer ultrasound thermal therapeutic sessions or higher TU intensities and inclusion of IU in the therapeutic procedure enables non-invasive monitoring of temperature. © 2013 IEEE.
