HIFU Doctors for cancer treatment
One of the most well-known prostate cancer treatments obtainable is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
(HIFU) treatment. This efficient technology aids patients by eliminating cancerous tissue over the
prostate and near it by means of a modern acoustic ablation method by means of ultrasound wave
powers. The part where the cancer appears is targeted through sound waves allowing HIFU to increase
the tissue's temperature, helping the tissue to be separated, thus removing the cancer.
Many HIFU Doctors recommend this technique because of the restricted injurious side effects. Owing to
the precision as well as control related with HIFU, further side effects frequent to other prostate cancer
treatments, comprising incontinence, are greatly reduced. The entire HIFU procedure usually takes just
three hours and some hours after the process is ended, men are capable to go home.
Minimum anesthesia is used during the HIFU procedure to reduce the level of distressed men. HIFU does
not apply radiation and is regarded as non-ionizing. This easy way denotes that the HIFU treatment may
be used on more than one time if necessary without making damage to nearby healthy tissue. Owing to
this fact, a lot of Orlando HIFU physicians or cancer physicians use HIFU if they get little success with
other healing alternatives for prostate cancer.
For prostate cancer healing, many international HIFU Physicians use the Sonablate 500, a very
distinguished HIFU system operated in several hospitals as well as clinics. Controlled through a
computer, this Sonablate 500 brings HIFU energy to the prostate by means of a rectal probe. This work is
set to eradicate all tissue in the part that has been influenced by cancer disease. The Sonablate 500 uses
incorporated biplanar ultrasound imaging, presenting real-time examining and planning of the treatment,
in addition to before or after images of the infected area.
The HIFU method can be compared to the idea of directing the rays of the sun with any magnifying lens.
Specific focusing of ultrasound energy is offered by HIFU. This emphasizing of the ultrasound energy
enhances the unnatural tissue's temperature in the particular part. This is made very fast while all
unaffected tissue in the part remains protected and does not rise in temperature.
The HIFU Doctor, when the process is over, is capable to monitor the exact lesion situated in the target
part. Numerous physicians advise HIFU because it presents high imaging resolution. It enables
physicians to proficiently identify the essential structures in the region, comprising the recta wall, or the
neurovascular bundles and such others.
