This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

US imaging firm Siemens Medical Solutions and Chinese developer of therapeutic ultrasound systems Chongqing Haifu Technology are to jointly develop a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy system which uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to guide delivery of treatment. The combination of MRI and HIFU enables improved visualisation of the tumour and allows more precise control of the thermal dose, thereby reducing overall treatment time, said Malvern, Pennsylvania-based Siemens. The main applications of this system will be women's health conditions, including benign uterine fibroids and cancer, and treating tumours of the liver, kidney, pancreas and bone.
