High Intensity Ultrasound Surgery
Coordinators: David Melodelima, Cyril Lafon
The use of high-intensity ultrasound for the treatment of diseased tissue, notably in oncology, is a highly competitive and particularly innovative field, as shown by the increasing number of teams involved on an international scale and the new devices using high-power ultrasound recently marketed. Research programs will be conducted to bring new developments, notably concerning extracorporeal, interstitial or endocavitary application of high intensity ultrasound for thermal ablation. New devices and new methods will be evaluated for the treatment of diseased tissue by ultrasound, notably liver, brain and prostate cancer. These developments will also include ultrasound thrombolysis and the treatment of glaucoma.
