Your HIFU Treatment
Who is a Candidate for HIFU with the Sonablate® 500?
Sonablate® HIFU may be effective for men who have early stage, localized prostate cancer that has not spread or metastasized outside the prostate. It is recommended that you discuss your individual medical records and history with a physician in order to confirm whether or not you are a candidate for Sonablate® HIFU.
Sonablate® HIFU may also be an effective therapy for recurrent prostate cancer when patients may not have any other treatment options.
Many patients, who have had primary therapy for prostate cancer, experience a rise in PSA years later and discover that the cancer is back. These patients may be candidates for the Sonablate® HIFU treatment as well.
