Core Tip Therapeutic ultrasound is a promising treatment modality for minimally invasive thermal ablation of tissue. This study assessed a novel trans-urethral ultrasound therapy device with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance to ablate canine prostate tissue in vivo. Real-time temperature monitoring and thermotherapy feed-back control was performed in a clinical 3T whole-body MR scanner. Post-treatment evaluation of caver-nous nerve functionality was performed with a nerve stimulator. Treatment accuracy was assessed by correlation of treatment planning, thermal dose maps, and histo-pathological results. Regions of thermal ablation were limited to areas within the prostate capsule and no damage was observed in adjacent anatomical structures. These results indicate that MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound therapy can accurately ablate prostatic regions with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.
