Five men have been treated for localized prostate cancer
using transurethral ultrasound therapy, and whole mount
pathology has been completed to assess the extent of
thermal damage. For these cases, the temperature control
accuracy and the treatment accuracy from comparison with
histology are reported. Successful treatment to the
prostate boundary has been observed, demonstrating the
feasibility of this technique in prostates up to 71 cc
in volume and with treatment radii up to 35 mm.
