Abstract


Day by day, High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy is becoming more familiar in oncology because it is non-invasive technique with fewer side effects and provides promising therapeutic results. Several HIFU therapy applications have approved by many approval authorities of several countries since last decade. In fact, now, HIFU is approved for the clinical treatment of uterine fibroid, bone pain palliation, ablation of the prostate carcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), breast car-cinoma, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) treatment of essential tremor as a first neurological application etc. Besides of this, HIFU is also broadly using in face and neck cosmetic reconstruction from last few decades and proving promising results. It is a novel, emerging, therapeutic modality that uses ultrasound waves, propagated through tissue media, as carriers of energy. HIFU has great potential for tumor ablation and the main mechanisms of HIFU ablation involve mechanical and thermal effects. In our review, we are trying to include an overview of basic principle of HIFU therapy, it’s both types i.e., USG guided HIFU and MRI guided HIFU, their limitations and overview on future in oncology
