Abstract

ABSTRACT: High-intensity focused ultrasonography is the only completely non-invasive thermal therapy. To date its applications have been limited but clinical indications are expanding with enhanced technological advances that have increased the accuracy of targeting and decreased the duration of treatment times. We report its first use for rectal cancer.
