Summary

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.

Description

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.

Evaluation of pain during high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation of benign thyroid nodules.

To assess severity and factors of pain during high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation of benign thyroid nodules.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
