This is a feasibility study to determine safety and the ability of HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)to selectively destroy prostate cancer tissue in men who demonstrate local recurrence of prostate cancer following radiation treatment.
This is a feasibility study to determine the safety and the ability of HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)to selectively destroy prostate cancer tissue in men who demonstrate local recurrence of prostate cancer following radiation treatment. All participants will receive treatment with HIFU and be monitored closely for recurrence of disease (if any),quality of life and adverse events.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This phase II trial studies how well high-intensity focused ultrasound works in treating participants with intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer. High-intensity focused ultrasound use...
RATIONALE: High-intensity focused ultrasound energy may be able to kill tumor cells by heating them without affecting normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well high...
RATIONALE: High-intensity focused ultrasound focal ablation uses high-energy sound waves to kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of high-intensity f...
RATIONALE: Highly focused ultrasound energy may be able to kill tumor cells by heating the tumor without affecting the surrounding tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the sid...
The purpose of this study is to determine the substantial equivalence of the Ablatherm high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as compared to cryotherapy for the treatment of low risk, lo...
Some men with localized radio-recurrent prostate cancer may benefit from salvage high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Herein, we describe oncologic outcomes and predictors of disease response aft...
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men over 50 years of age. Surgery, radiotherapy and hormonal manipulation represent its typical treatment. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)...
Pancreatic cancer (PaC) is a life-limiting tumor with a wide range of incapacitating symptoms such as cancer pain in more than 80 % of patients. This prospective interventional study addresses th...
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently allowed marketing of two HIFU devices for prostate tissue ablation indications after previous rejections for a prostate cancer indication due to insuffi...
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to destroy tissue. It is sometimes used in conjunction with but is distinct from INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
The use of HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES, in the frequency range of 20-60 kHz, to cut through or remove tissue. The tissue fragmentation by ultrasonic surgical instruments is caused by mechanical effects not heat as with HIGH-INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND ABLATION.
The application of high intensity ultrasound to liquids.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
