High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a noninvasive surgical technique in which ultrasound energy is delivered transcutaneously to a discrete area within the body. This energy can result in a well-defined zone of cellular death within the targeted tissue. We used HIFU in an effort to ablate rabbit VX-2 kidney tumors. A tumor cell suspension was injected into a renal segmental artery (Phase 1, nine rabbits) or directly into the lower pole parenchyma (Phase 2, nine rabbits). After a 2-week… CONTINUE READING
