High-intensity focused ultrasound

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionizing ultrasonic waves to heat or ablate tissue. HIFU can be used to increase the flow of blood or lymph, or to destroy tissue, such as tumors, via thermal and mechanical mechanisms. Given the prevalence and relatively low cost of ultrasound, HIFU has been subject to much research and development. The premise of HIFU is that it is a non-invasive low cost therapy that can at minimum outperform the current standard of care.
