High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a minimally-invasive and non-ionizing promising technology and has been assessed for its role in the treatment of not only primary tumors but also metastatic lesions under the guidance of ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. Its performance is notably effective in neurologic, genitourinary, hepato-pancreato-biliary, musculoskeletal, oncologic, and other miscellaneous applications. In this article, we reviewed the emerging technology of HIFU and its clinical applications.
