Ultrasound-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment for needle-track seeding of hepatocellular carcinoma: preliminary results.

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate therapeutic efficacy of ultrasound (US)-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation for treatment of needle-track seeding of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine patients with needle-track seeding of HCC were treated as outpatients using US-guided HIFU ablation. The mean size of the lesion was 1.8 cm… (More)
