How does HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) work as a therapy for prostate cancer? Watch this video to find out.
Important Facts from the HIFU Video:
The Sonablate 500 system is a computer controlled device designed for delivery of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to the prostate for treatment of prostate disease.
Urologists have been using the Sonablate 500 system to treat localized prostate cancer, benign prostetic hyperplasia (BPH) and recurrent prostate cancer.
The Sonablate 500 makes use of ultrasound imaging for real-time treatment monitoring, treatment planning and pre and post-treatment imaging of the prostate. Precise focusing of ultrasound energy during HIFU treatment elevates the temperature of the tissue in the focal zone very rapidly, while intervening tissue between the transducer and the focal zone is kept at a safe temperature.
The result of HIFU therapy is an accurate and repeatable lesion at the target sites that are monitored in real time by the treating physician. All the treatment zones are pre-planned and checked by the physician prior to HIFU treatment.
Please, watch the video to learn more and contact me to arrange a personal consultation regarding HIFU therapy using the Sonablate 500 system.
