Control flow diagram of the MR thermometry-based hyperthermia delivery system. The RTHawk research platform acquires and reconstructs the real-time MRI data. The real-time MR thermometry application generates temperature maps. The beam controller samples temperature values within a grid of ROIs and controls the focus and power output of the ultrasound beam, ensuring constant and uniform heating within the region of treatment. The control proxy server relays commands from the beam controller to the manufacturer’s ultrasound control software
