During the recent Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Meeting, the "Hot Topics" Session on HIFU boasted well over 100 attendees despite the early Monday morning time-slot on November 29th, 2010.  

Presenters covered MR-guided focused ultrasound for the treatment of breast cancer, pain palliation of bone metastasis, and uterine fibroids.  

As the objective of the session was to provide an overview of the technology and clinical applications currently in practice or on the horizon, no new data was presented from the 2nd International Symposium on MR-guided Focused Ultrasound.  Yet for those unfamilar with the technology, the presentations provided a thorough introduction and overview - which we very much hope served as the beginning of attendees' exposure and interest in the field.
