13 -- High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation.HIFU is one modality of therapeutic ultrasound, involving minimally invasive or non-invasive methods to direct acoustic energy into the body.In HIFU therapy, ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65deg to 85degC, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis.
