Abstract

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is an early stage medical technology that is in various stages of development worldwide to treat a range of disorders including skin superficial diseases. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapid development imaging technique in recent ten years, which is a good way to monitor skin because of the millimeter-level detection depth. In this study, OCT system is used to monitor the skin after HIFU treatment. A new high frequency transducer has been fabricated in this study, focal length of the transducer is super small which is suitable for the superficial diseases.
