Current HIFU systems use the phased array technology to focus US waves into a tight area. Each component of the transducer receives its own modifiable electronic signal. This technique allows to steer and to focus the US beams, which enables to move the focus in almost any direction . 5 mm in width and 15 mm in length (“cigar” shape). This size may vary from a few millimeters depending on the parameters of the transducer. • In clinical practice, tumor usually measures more than 1 cm. Several overlapping shots have to be performed to ablate the whole lesion with safety margins and without leaving any residual viable tissue (Fig.

1). Mechanism of Action • Plasma-mediated ablation belongs to standard electrosurgical techniques, and is already widely used in ear, nose, and throat surgery for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, and sports medicine for arthroplasty and meniscectomy. However, the technology has been recently introduced in the field of percutaneous tissue ablative techniques, mainly for interventional spine procedures. Its main advantage is that it achieves volumetric removal of target tissue at cooler temperatures than other ablative techniques like radiofrequency and microwave ablation.
