High intensity focused ultrasound, or HIFU, is a therapy option for localized prostate cancer that may offer a balance between eliminating cancer and maintaining quality of life. It is an out-patient, radiation-free procedure from which you can truly walk away.
Sonablate HIFU is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients diagnosed with organ confined prostate cancer. The Sonablate uses precisely focused ultrasound waves that, when delivered, 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 focal zone unharmed.
OverÂ 10,000 men worldwideÂ have already chosen Sonablate HIFU to treat their prostate disease.
