Non-invasive temperature monitoring of tissue at depth in real-time is critical to hyperthermia therapies such as high-intensity focused ultrasound. Knowledge of temperature allows for monitoring treatment as well as providing real-time feedback to adjust deposited power in order to maintain safe and effective temperatures. Microwave-induced thermoacoustic (TA) imaging, which combines the conductivity/dielectric contrast of microwave imaging with the resolution of ultrasound, shows potential for estimating temperature non-invasively in real-time by indirectly measuring the temperature dependent parameters from reconstructed images. In this work, we study the temperature dependent behavior of the generated pressure in the TA effect and experimentally demonstrate simultaneous imaging and temperature monitoring using TA imaging. The proof-of-concept experiments demonstrate millimeter spatial resolution while achieving degree-level accuracy.
