AbstractTo dispose of a precise and non-invasive temperature measurement over the treated area becomes very important during hyperthermia treatments, in order to make possible an optimization of their healing effects. A performance analysis of some previously reported ultrasonic techniques, which were proposed for non-invasive temperature estimation, is made in this work over phantoms mimicking human tissues. A first technique is based on discrete scattering modeling for tissue characterization and spectral analysis of frequency distributions related to average scatters spacing [R. Seip & E.S. Ebbini]. Other technique uses certain relations between tissue temperature changes and time-shifts in echoes due to thermally induced sound velocity changes and expansions [R. Maass-Moreno & C.A. Damianou]. And finally, the third procedure analyzed here, is a recently proposed alternative, based on phase demodulation processing, to estimate the indirect effects of echoes time-shifts in the phase domain [M. Vázquez, A. Ramos, et al.]. The three options are analyzed for the same simulated & measured multi-pulse echo patterns, looking for detecting possible advantages and inconveniences in each case. Finally, some improvement paths over the basic estimation methods are also explored.
