The Principle of ultrasonic heating and the methods for constructing the ultrasonic heating apparatus, especially the design of the spherical surface array focusing system for the radiation-aided ultrasonic hyperthermia for cancer therapy have been reviewed. Several methods of noninvasive temperature measuring for monitoring the ultrasonic heating recently developed have been introduced.
