The integrated non-invasive ultrasound diagnosis and treatment we propose tracks and follows movement in an affected area – kidney stones here ” while High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is irradiated onto the area. High-speed CCD camera cannot be used in non-invasive diagnosis and treatment because we must avoid damaging healthy tissue. Servoing error mainly due to ultrasound imaging and its dead time become serious problems, unlike when a high-speed camera is used. We propose feed-forward control using semi-regular kidney movement focusing on enhancing servoing performance.
