Transurethral MR-Thermometry Guided Ultrasound Ablation of the Prostate – The Heidelberg Experience During Phase I of the TULSA-PRO Device Trial

This article describes a novel, MRI-guided, minimally-invasive method to safely ablate target benign and malignant prostate tissue with millimeter accuracy and precision. Real-time MR thermometry performed during transurethral ultrasound delivery enables active feedback control of the thermal volume, with high success in the ablation of the target tissue. [...]
