High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for the Ablation of Prostate Tissue

HIFU thermal ablation treatment

HIFU technology ablates prostate tissue by focusing high-intensity ultrasound waves on the affected area, causing localized heating that destroys the cells in the gland without damaging the surrounding tissue.

The prostate

The prostate is a small gland in the male reproductive system. It is situated in front of the rectum, below the bladder, and surrounds the urethra, which is the tube through which urine flows out of the body. The main function of the chestnut-sized prostate is to secrete part of the seminal fluid that combines with sperm to form semen. A healthy adult prostate weighs around 20 to 25 grams and is approximately 4 cm wide, 3 cm high and 2 cm thick. It can be affected by various diseases including cancer that can be detected by medical exam and blood PSA (prostate-specific antigen).

Quality of Life

HIFU for the ablation of prostate tissue is intended for the optimal preservation of quality of life.
