High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
For Prostate Cancer
A minimally invasive prostate cancer solution.
High intensity focused ultrasound, or HIFU, is a minimally invasive treatment option for localized prostate cancer that may offer a balance between eliminating cancer and maintaining quality of life. HIFU with Sonablate® 500 (Sonablate HIFU) is an out-patient, radiation-free procedure.
The HIFU procedure may be an option for men diagnosed with organ-confined prostate cancer. During the procedure, precisely focused ultrasound waves raise the temperature of the targeted prostate tissue to 195 degrees Fahrenheit in 2-3 seconds. This rapid-firing heat destroys the targeted tissue while leaving structures outside the targeted tissue unharmed.
