High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) shows considerable promise as a minimally-invasive technique for tumor ablation. A typical HIFU procedure involves focusing of acoustic energy in a small region, with the absorbed acoustic energy causing localized rise in tissue temperature. Temperature rise of the order of 40–60°C is achieved within seconds, causing immediate cell necrosis in the targeted region.
