High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), is a new treatment for Prostate Cancer. The technique uses of ultrasound to destroy deep-seated tissue with pinpoint accuracy. It focuses sound waves in a targeted area which rapidly increases the temperature in the focal zone causing tissue destruction. Unlike radiation, HIFU is non-ionizing; this means that HIFU may also be used as a salvage technique if other prostate cancer treatments fail.
