PURPOSE We ascertained the feasibility and safety of image guided targeted photothermal focal therapy for localized prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve patients with biopsy proven low risk prostate cancer underwent interstitial photothermal ablation of the cancer. The area of interest was confirmed and targeted using magnetic resonance imaging. Three-dimensional ultrasound was used to guide a laser to the magnetic resonance to ultrasound fused area of interest. Target ablation was… CONTINUE READING
