Reviews recent advances in interstitial and intracavitary ultrasound applicators designed for high-temperature thermal therapy and hyperthermia. Design and performance characteristics determined by acoustic measurements, in vitro and in vivo studies are presented. These results demonstrate the ability of this ultrasound technology to provide highly controllable zones of thermal coagulation or temperature elevation
