High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU, or sometimes MRgFUS for magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound) is a medical procedure that applies high intensity focused ultrasound energy to locally heat and destroy diseased or damaged tissue through ablation. HIFU is used to treat some types of cancer. In this case, the doctor uses high-frequency waves to target and kill cancer cells in one specific area of the body. This procedure is considered minimally invasive.
