High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) - A minimally invasive treatment option for prostate cancer

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also called as HIFU is a state-of-the-art technology developed to treat cancerous cells without harming the healthy cells. HIFU uses acoustic ablation technique. This technique utilizes the power of ultrasound to destroy cancerous cells with pinpoint accuracy for prostate cancer treatment. The cancerous cells in the prostate gland are destroyed with the high temperature which is generated by focusing sound waves in a targeted area.

HIFU procedure for prostate cancer treatment is a very simple procedure which requires shorter time to perform. Since it is non-ionizing, it can also be used as a salvage technique if other treatments for treating prostate cancer fail.

During the procedure, the doctor uses continuously updated real-time images of the prostate gland on a computer screen. This helps the doctor to map out and execute the entire treatment plan and to customize treatment for maximum safety and effectiveness.
