From the USA: MRI-Guided TULSA Effective at Five Years for Localized Prostate Cancer

For the treatment of localized prostate cancer, in-bore, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (TULSA) results in favorable outcomes at five years, including durable oncologic control and functional preservation, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Interventional Radiology, held from March 23 to 28 in Salt Lake City.

Steven Raman, M.D., from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California in Los Angeles, and colleagues evaluated the safety, quality of life, and oncological outcomes at five-year follow-up among 115 men with localized, predominantly intermediate-risk prostate cancer who underwent a single in-bore, MRI-guided TULSA treatment.
