High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

Clinical Research + Technology Development

HIFU's Lab's research is focused on High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), which is a form of image-guided therapy capable of non-invasive tissue ablation and drug delivery.

Research Highlights

High-Precision Tissue Ablation comparisons

High-Precision Tissue Ablation

Thermal lesions the size of a grain of rice can be generated in tissues.

Microscopic view of Image-Guided Therapy

Image-Guided Therapy

Procedures such as the treatment of localized prostate cancer could be transformed to minimally-invasive outpatient treatments using MR-HIFU

Image-Guided Doxorubicin Delivery comparison

Image-Guided Doxorubicin Delivery

Improved delivery of doxorubicin can be achieved in tumors using MR-HIFU and thermosensitive liposomes.
