3. Does HIFU only treat the cancerous cells or does it ablate the entire prostate?

HIFU treated the entire prostate by targeting tissue in six overlapping treatment zones. The tissue is heated rapidly in small lesion until eventually the entire prostate is ablated. By treating the entire prostate gland, the chance for recurrence, or the cancer coming back is minimized. All the organs and tissue outside of the prostate remain unaffected during HIFU.
