HIFU Cancer Treatment: Precision Healing



  Feb 05, 2024

HIFU Treatment for Cancer



What is HIFU treatment?

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment uses ultrasound waves to heat and destroy cancer cells.

How does HIFU work?

HIFU generates heat from ultrasound waves to kill cancer cells, a principle known for 10-15 years. Recent machines with AI have improved accuracy and reduced side effects.

What advancements have been made in HIFU technology?

New HIFU machines have AI sensors to accurately target cancer cells, minimizing damage to healthy tissue.

Is HIFU widely used for all cancers?

Currently, HIFU is mainly used for prostate cancer, but research is ongoing for its use in other cancers like breast and uterine cancers.

Is HIFU more effective than surgery?

HIFU may be a better option for treating small, localized prostate cancer due to lower risks of recurrence and preserving the gland.

Are there limitations to using HIFU?

HIFU isn’t suitable for all cases of prostate cancer, especially if the cancer has spread outside the prostate or affects both lobes extensively.

Can HIFU be used alongside other cancer treatments?

Typically, HIFU is used alone without the need for additional treatments like medicine or chemotherapy, but it depends on the cancer’s stage and location.
