The procedure for making a decision to undergo HIFU therapy
The stage of ultrasound navigation of the area of planned HIFU exposure is a necessary preliminary stage of treatment. Clarification of the technical capability of the operation is carried out directly in performing therapy device.
In the process of further examination, the affordability of the area of exposure is determined, the tactics of complete treatment of the formation with high-intensity focused ultrasound are being developed.
Anatomical features of the body structure, the presence of scarring changes, the proximity of neighboring organs can serve as an obstacle to the passage of an ultrasound beam, and therefore, based on the results of the marking, a revision of treatment tactics is possible.
