TULSA-PRO V HIFU

User
Posted 30 Jul 2019 at 02:49

There have been studies in several facilities in Germany on TULSA-PRO, an ablative treatment for Prostate cancer which looks like being an improvement on HIFU.  The spoken narration in this link is in German but the printed notes that accompany it are in English :-https://www.altaklinik.com/prostate/therapy/treatment-for-prostate-cancer/

A more detailed comparison is made in this link along with slides from Heidelberg University Hospital and the DKFZ:- http://www.profoundmedical.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Phase1ResultsPresentationFUS_London2015_pdf.pdf

It will be interesting to see if leads to a greater uptake of ablative treatment for suitable patients.
