We have developed a non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system (NIUTS) that tracks and follows the movement of an affected area (kidney stone / tumor, in this study) while irradiating it with high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). In this paper, we propose a method to simplify extracting, tracking and following, monitoring the affected area by using a bed-type non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system.
