Paper Abstract

Introduction: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a minimally invasive therapy which can produce tissues necrosis in depth by a local thermal effect. Objectives: Evaluate the effect of extracorporeal HIFU with electronic scanning in the treatment of pig kidney. Conclusion: Extracorporeal HIFU with electronic scanning can produce tissue necrosis into pig's kidneys. This treatment could be used in human as a non invasive therapy of small kidney's tumors less than 30 cm3 of volume.
