Purpose. To investigate the safety, efficacy and feasibility of using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as a non-invasive treatment for patients with breast cancer.Patients and Methods. Twenty-two patients with breast cancer were enrolled into this non-randomized prospective trial. Disease TNM stage was classified as stage I in 4 patients, stage IIA in 9 patients, stage IIB in 8 patients, and stage IV in 1 patient. Tumor size ranged from 2 to 4.8 cm in diameter (mean 3.4 cm).
