HIFU high energy target ultrasound therapy for prostate cancer.
HIFU therapy is a technology of the latest generation of achievements that uses ultrasonic vibrational energy to reach the tissues in depth. The method works without affecting healthy tissues in the immediate vicinity and does not cause ionization.
High-frequency ultrasonic energy heats and destroys prostate cancer cells.
HIFU is “non-invasive” – it means there is no surgery or scarring.
For HIFU treatment you will be accepted for treatment early in the morning and will be able to leave the hospital later that day. Other more radical treatments usually require several days in the hospital.
Erectile dysfunction and incontinence are less likely than with other interventions.
