|Title:||DETECTION OF TREATMENT FAILURE FOR MILD HYPERTHERMIA|
A system (100) includes an imaging system (130), and a therapy control device (122). The imaging system (130) generates temperature maps (140) and strain maps (142) of localized tissues of a patient. The therapy control device (122) includes one or more computer processors configured to detect at least one failure mode (300, 302, 304, 400) of generated mild hyperthermia in the localized tissues of the patient according to at least one of the temperature maps, the strain maps, or a signal indicative of detected inertial cavitation. In some embodiments, the therapy control device either halts therapy or issues a warning.
